Still has a whiff of youthful funk (from reduction), but after a couple of swirls of the glass this blossoms, becoming fragrant and expressive. The fine-grained tannins and mineral acidity give this a wonderful texture on the palate that’s not quite like anything else in Beaujolais. Very long, silky finish. From organically grown grapes. Unfiltered. Drink or hold.
