France  Beaujolais 

The serendipitous discovery of a forgotten barrel that got an extra year of ageing on top of the planned one year in oak barriques led to the style being replicated every year since 2015. Elegant, structured and Burgundian without the hefty price tag!

Corpore Sano 2015 75cl cl

A very classic Juliénas, except for the part where it is aged in oak barrels for two years and then bottled unfiltered. The result is a wine that I would characterize as elegantly burgundian. If you've never been convinced that Gamay can become Pinot Noir like or as the French would say "Pinoter" then you should try this!

If you want to explore the Burgundian side of Gamay this is a great wine.
Quite fruity, as it is bottled unfiltered, with nice round tannins. The oak is fairly subtle.
It beautifully complements our line of top Beaujolais wines.
Côte de boeuf
Meat proteins of any description will enhance the drinking experience even more so beef and lamb would be ideal!
Tasting Notes

Anne McHale MW tasted the 2015 in May 2020 "Silky, gorgeous red fruit"

Tim (Alpine Trade Sales) tasted the 2015 in May 2020:

Colour: Medium Ruby

Nose: Developing pronounced aromas of dried blackberry and cranberry, fig, a little forest floor, cedarwood, charred wood, and vanilla.

Palate: Dry, high acidity, medium plus silky tannins, medium alcohol, medium plus body with a super long finish. Pronounced aromas of Dried balckberry, fig, prune,charred wood, cedar and vanilla. A wine that's definitely showing how Gamay can "Pinoter" ( become Pinot like with maturity)

Vintage 2015
Black Cherry on the nose with hints of black current and blackberry and a touch of vanilla. There is a pronounced spiciness that enhances the fruit on the palate where the well-rounded tannins and a lingering finish make this a truly impressive Julienas. It is aged in French-oak barrels for two years but the oak is fairly subtle with only a hint of vanilla on the nose and enhanced spiciness on the palate. The wine is bottled unfiltered.
