Why do we love this wine?
When young Beaujolais native Jean-Baptiste is asked what influences his winemaking, the response is simple: “passion guides me”. With an illustrious career, galavanting around the globe doing vintages from Australia’s McLaren Vale (Coriole) to USA’s Sonoma (Chalk Hill), and all over the Europe (including England) and with famous French producers, such as in Northern Rhone (Yves Cuilleron) Quite a curated apprenticeship, which ultimately lead to an insanely ambitious dream being realised. A rare opportunity to acquire the Domaine du Mont Joly, in Beaujolais. With these ancient granite soils, and 2.5 hectares of vines, it’s all about gamay and the unearthing of vast terroirs in Beaujolais-Villages.
Rich, deep fruits abound here; boysenberry and black cherry. Earthy notes are starting to show, but it’s the overlaying quality of fruit and tannins that offer an elegance and generosity unlike a typical Beaujolais. An excellent wine.
Tell me what you really think.
