wild currant

2010 Domaine Jules Desjourneys Fleurie La Chapelle des Bois

Let me tell you… there is some yummy stuff coming out of Beaujolais, especially from this rockstar producer! Juicy small red fruit, wet soil, chocolate, raspberries, and brushwood with a dusting of cinnamon and brown spice on the nose. Earthy wild fruit, red currants, nutmeg, cinnamon, and earth on the palate. High acidity and very present tannins. Really great stuff - like a baby Burgundy cru!
