A remarkable wine from Dominique Piron, one of Beaujolais' best producers, this Chenas from 60 year old vines is as delicious, complex and ageworthy as a top red Burgundy. Extraordinary value and very rarely seen.
“Meaty, interesting perfume but delightfully refreshing.”
“Very fresh red fruits nose with some peppery spiciness. Detailed and fresh with some raspberry too. Lovely elegance on the palate, which shows focused red cherry and raspberry fruit with some peppery detail. Floral, fresh and delicious.”
“Brilliant ruby-red. A sexy, highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh red and dark berries, potpourri and smoky minerals, and a subtle hint of game emerges slowly. Juicy, impressively concentrated black raspberry, bitter cherry and violet pastille flavors tighten up and become spicier on the back half. Powerful but graceful, finishing very long, sappy and precise, with no rough edges and a repeating floral quality.”
