Jules Desjourneys "L'Interdit" Vin de France MMVIII 2008

93 Our Score
93 Wine Advocate
(8/2011) "The wine that will be known as 2008 Desjourneys is none other than Duperray's 2008 Fleurie - combining Chapelle des Bois and Les Moriers - that was refused appellation and so is officially, merely, "vin de France." Believe me, this is "vin de France" in the same sense that Debussy signed many of his late masterpieces "musicien francais." The high-toned floral, herbal, and fruit distillate esters that memorably marked the Chapelle des Bois from cask as well as the black tea-tinged and more bittersweetly herbal and concentrated dark berries of the original Les Moriers, have been preserved in this marriage - in fact, after recovering from my chagrin at this wine's having been denied its rightful appellation, I am now entirely reconciled to the two sites having been blended, inasmuch as the whole seems, remarkably, even greater than the sum of its already profoundly delicious parts! This finishes with mouthwatering salinity and a tenacious, almost Gewurztraminer-like meld of brown spices concentrated floral and herbal essences. I would anticipate it being worth following for half a dozen years, but on no account should it be missed earlier-on."

Chateau Thivin "Rochebonne" Beaujolais Blanc 2015

(8/2016) "The 2015 Beaujolais Clos de Rochebonne Blanc comes from the south of Beaujolais on limestone/clay soils and had been bottled around three weeks earlier. It is vinified in barrel and left on the fine lees for seven months. It has a really quite wonderful bouquet with chalk, citrus fruit and dewy green apples. The terroir is articulated beautifully here. The palate is fresh and vibrant, honeydew melon, papaya and a touch dried orange peel. It feels pithy towards the finish, completing a really quite absorbing white Beaujolais, one for those that want to confuse people who love southern Rhône!"

Domaine des Terres Dorees "L'Ancien" Vieilles Vignes Beaujolais 2015

Tons of fruit, but also loaded with minerality. Lively and pure, this delicious wine is a great representative of the amazing 2015 vintage in Beaujolais.

(1/2017) "Vivid ruby-red. Sexy, high-pitched red berry and floral aromas, along with suggestions of incense and Asian spices. Suave, seamless and penetrating in the mouth, offering juicy raspberry and rose pastille flavors that smoothly combine richness and vivacity. A spine of juicy acidity adds structure and lift as well as urgency. Leaves a deeper blue fruit note behind on the very long, sappy finish, which reveals no rough edges and impressive energy. This wine delivers some serious value."

Domaine des Terres Dorees Beaujolais Blanc Chardonnay 2015

90 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
90+ Our Score
(5/2017) Jean-Paul Brun crafts this plump and nervy Chardonnay from 80+ year-old vines grown in clay and limestone strewn soils. Though sourced from Beaujolais and selling for just $15, the wine tastes like a high quality $20+ Pouilly-Fuisse. The citrus and orchard fruit flavors and chalky minerality are wonderfully delicious, not to mention atypically deep for a wine at this price. One of the best Chardonnay values of the year? Taste and find out!

La Boutanche Vin de France Gamay 2016

89 Our Score
(5/2017) The Pig is back! Oliver Minot is now solidly at the helm of this Boutanche bottling, which is 100% Gamay from Southern Beaujolais. The juice comes from 70 year old vines planted on limestone soils. Cement tanks are used for fermentation and the wine is bottle with zero SO2. Fresh picked raspberries, black tea and freshly tilled soil notes abound. This eminently chuggable "zero" wine comes in 1 Liter bottles, which is a very good thing considering how delicious this little wine is.
