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”. He boasts an illustrious career, galavanting around the globe doing vintages from Australia’s McLaren Vale (Coriole) to USA’s Sonoma (Chalk Hill), and all over 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.
Beaujolais that shows this intensity is a wondrous wine. With a deep nose that offers juicy black cherries, bramble and ripe plum, this is quite concentrated with chunkier upfront tannins that taper into a silky ‘peacock feather’ shaped finish. This is all about exuberance, yet with an effortlessness feeling. Wow.
Tell me what you really think.
