Laurent Perrachon Beaujolais Blanc Terre De Loyse 2015 Product #31115 (In Stock)
Laurent Perrachon Beaujolais Blanc Terre De Loyse 2015 Laurent Perrachon Beaujolais Blanc Terre De Loyse 2015

Long for fine white Burgundy for under $20?  You have to look a little further afield than in days of old, but it's still out there for the finding if you try long and hard enough.  Here's a fine example.

Laurent Perrachon has built a reputation as one of Beaujolais best independent producers and one of the few to make reds from six different Beaujolais Crus. The reds are great, but his tiny production white Beaujolais really stole our hearts.  It's 100% "Perle Blanche" (the local name for Chardonnay) grown on limestone-clay soils, harvested entirely by hand, and made in stainless steel tank.

Pretty aromas of stone fruit and apple shine with accents of crushed herb (chervil, perhaps) and a little butter.  Then rich and lightly fleshy with pear, apple, peach, and buttery flavors and a dusting of crushed stone at the end.  A nice briskness makes this refreshing on its own and it will certainly shine with roast chicken, seafood and more.  Fine wine, fine value.

Pascal Granger Beaujolais Villages Le Fetrau 2013 Product #31715 (In Stock)

Old-school Beaujolais here from an estate that's been in the family for 200 years and sits right in the heart of Julienas.  This 2013 cuvee is a fine introduction into the joys of Gamay, joyful and full of plump Beaujolais fruit with fine purity and verve.  There's good richness, loads of tangy cherry and berry fruit, and a finish that simply will not quit.  The price is just silly low for so much authentic, satisfying, fun!

Jean Marc Lafont Beaujolais Cru Fleurie 2015 Product #31824 (In Stock)

A delicious Cru Beaujolais from the ripe 2015 vintage that's sure to make you smile. Aromas of fresh blackberries and black tea invite you to take a sip.  On the palate, it's filled with ripe berry fruit, vibrant acidity, and just enough tannin to hold the whole thing together. It's fresh and juicy, but still finishes smooth. Drink slightly chilled with your first outdoor dinner of spring.

Ch Thivin Cote De Brouilly 2015 Product #31589 (In Stock)
Ch Thivin Cote De Brouilly 2015 Ch Thivin Cote De Brouilly 2015

A benchmark Gamay from 50 year-old vines growing on steeply sloped, rocky, soils on the side of the ancient volcano now known as Mont Brouilly. Claude Geoffray and son Claude-Edouard partially destem their fruit, ferment whole cluster, and age the wine in a mixture of concrete and old oak casks.  The 2015 is a perfect introduction to the delights of Beaujolais, with generous crunchy black cherry and raspberry fruit, lavender accents, and juicy, fresh, acids.  Try it a bit cool on a picnic or at home with sausages or grilled chicken and you'll see why this is one of the most exciting summer reds in the store.

"Bottled 3 weeks prior to my visit, the 2015 Côte de Brouilly was very closed on the nose though you can tell that it is packed to the rafters with fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with intense red and black fruit, superb mineralité and harmony, gradually building in the mouth with a compelling, tensile finish. What a fantastic Beaujolais in the making - about as good as it gets to be quite honest. If I taste a better QPR wine this year...no, just impossible."Wine Advocate 94 points

Dom Chignard Fleurie Les Moriers 2015 Product #31698 (In Stock)
Dom Chignard Fleurie Les Moriers 2015 Dom Chignard Fleurie Les Moriers 2015

What a stunning wine from the stellar 2015 vintage.  Classic Fleurie perfume and elegance with an extra notch of power and grip.

"High-pitched red berry, spicecake and floral scents are complemented by deeper suggestions of cherry pit and licorice. Taut and sharply focused on entry, offering palate-staining bitter cherry and raspberry flavors that flesh out and turn sweeter with aeration. Silky tannins add gentle grip to the finish, which hangs with very impressive, subtly spicy tenacity. The interplay of power and elegance here is quite something."  Vinous (Raynolds) 93 points

"The 2015 Fleurie les Moriers has a similar bouquet to the 2014 but with a little more intensity. This springs out of the glass whereas the previous vintage needed more coaxing. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy ripe red fruit on the entry. I like the cohesion and focus here, demonstrating fine structure for a Fleurie, almost Morgon-like on the finish. This is a superb follow-up to the impressive 2014."Wine Advocate 91 points
