Rare Beaujolais BLANC
2019 Domaine Cheveau Les Pouliches Beaujolais Villages BLANC...$21.99

100% Chardonnay from Beaujolais
Beaujolais Blanc “Les Pouliches” : “Les Pouliches” (French for “the fillies”) is a reference to the youthful age of these vines—the newest plantings of the domaine, from 2013, in the communes of Leynes and Chânes. Aged for 11 months in stainless steel, this is rounder and richer than the Bourgogne Blanc, but still possesses the riveting focus and sense of just-so equilibrium that characterize all of the domaine’s white wines.

2019 Jean Foillard Beaujolais Villages....$19.99
Brilliant violet. Incisive, mineral-accented cherry and black raspberry aromas are complemented by suggestions of pungent flowers and allspice. Sappy and focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry and dark berry flavors that deepen slowly and become sweeter with air. The mineral note repeats on a very long, smooth finish shaped by fine-grained, even tannins.
Rated 92/100 Vinous Media

2018 Comte de Langeron Morgon Cru Beaujolais...$24.99
Morgon is the second largest cru in Beaujolais, it has often been called the "Hermitage" of Beaujolais. It is bigger and fuller than most Beaujolais and can age for up to 10 years. The Comte de Langeron Morgon has beautiful stone fruit, kirsch, minerality and spice flavors with a big mouthfeel and a bright juiciness. Comte de Langeron produces small amounts of Cru Beaujolais, each bottle is numbered.

2020 Comte de Langeron Saint Amour Cru Beaujolais...$23.99
Saint Amour is one of the tiniest crus of Beaujolais, therefore we do not see very much of it here.  Very floral and fruity nose. The nose of this wine jumps out of the glass with cherries and ripe strawberries. The palate is rich with a hint of dark chocolate and it is medium to full bodied. Great structure and presence in the glass with its vibrant color. This Saint Amour is a great year round red wine. Great in the summer, just put chill it for about 15 minutes. Also perfect food wine with a wide variety of foods. So Versatile!

2020 Chateau Thivin Cote de Brouilly...$29.99
The 2020 Côte de Brouilly is already very expressive, bursting with aromas of ripe berry fruit, plums and cherries mingled with hints of raw cocoa and spices. Medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, it's rich and fleshy, with powdery tannins, lively acids and a sapid finish. In style, this is more muscular than the more elegant 2019, but both represent benchmarks for Beaujolais in their respective vintages.
Rated 93/100 The Wine Advocate

2018 Stephane Aviron Julienas Vieilles Vignes...$19.99
About the Vintage: 2018 was one of the best vintages Stéphane Aviron has made in the past twenty years and by some considerations a perfect vintage for Beaujolais!
This wine has complex herbal, red cherry and wild strawberry aromas. The flavors are ripe and concentrated with structure. The wine has a packed character that speaks of firm but still soft tannins that will help the wine age for years. Aging for at least two years is recommended for the best drinkability.
