- The Wine
Ben says of the 2016 (November 2018): I often refer to Switzerland as being the eleventh Cru of Beaujolais but when faced with a wine of this quality, it is easy to forget that Beaujolais even exists!
A rich Gamay nose with plenty of cherry, mainly black but with red present also. The acidity is very apparent on first sipping but that energises the palate and the true balance of the wine becomes immediately apparant. The cherries continue in the mouth and the freshness is delightful.
This is a superb Gamay.
