Domaine Robert Denogent "Cuvee Jules Chauvet" Beaujolais Villages 2013

93 Our Score
89 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
(2/2015) "(made with whole clusters, no sulfur, no fining and no filtration): Light, bright red. Earth- and pepper-accented redcurrant and strawberry aromas, with hints of rhubarb and musky herbs and faint volatility. Tangy and sharply focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry and slightly tart red fruits that gain sweetness with air. Finishes taut and spicy, with good cut and no obvious tannins. Distinctly old school and on the raw side, but not without its charms, especially if you're a fan of funky wines. The fruit for this wine is sourced from a vineyard that's leased from the family of the legendary Jules Chauvet, an enology professor and writer whose work was the inspiration for Marcel Lapierre, Jean Thévenet, Jean Foillard, Guy Breton and a host of other vignerons in Beaujolais and, now, across the globe. His influence is practically immeasurable, in fact, as he is a demigod of the natural wine movement."

Justin Dutraive Beaujolais Village 2015

91 Our Score
(4/2017) Justin is the son of legendary Beaujolais producer Jean-Louis Dutraive. 2015 marks Justin's first solo vintage, and despite the challenges of the vintage, managed to produce something rather amazing. Though he is young, he has a truly impressive resume under his belt, not only from working with his father but also the likes of Jean Foillard and others. The wine was fermented in a globe shaped vessel, think an egg fermenter taken to the next level! This vessel adds lots of texture without cumbersome weight, resulting in a plush mouth feel with plenty of mouthwatering red fruits and earth tones. "Les Bullands" is a big, broad shoulder wine, typical in the context of 2015s. It is powerful with plenty of gripy tannins, though these melt considerably with air. This is a great first showing from a very talented young man. We can't wait to see what he does next!

Janodet "Domaine Les Fines Graves" Beaujolais Villages 2015

90 Our Score
90 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
(10/2016) "Vivid red. Pungent aromas of ripe cherry, blackberry licorice and mocha carry a smoky mineral topnote. Pliant dark fruit flavors and hints of rose pastille and bitter chocolate, along with a jolt of cracked pepper that adds backend cut. Finishes broad, smooth and quite long, revealing no rough edges and a lingering suggestion of sappy dark berries. This wine consistently delivers great value and punches well above its weight."
