He said: Opened and recorked, drank 24-hours later. Ruby red color with a light rim. Lots of fresh red berries in the aroma. WOW, a RICH taste with plenty of ripe cherries, currents and raspberries that continues on and on. This is the second magnum we have had of this wine and it’s a terrific value. We opened it to pair with appetizers before Christmas dinner, but drank the recorked wine with the left-over dinner the next day. It was a terrific success with both pairings…which says it all…a great wine that pairs well with all kinds of food and that’s truly a bargain. EXCELLENT Beaujolais that’s an OUTSTANDING value. Two thumbs up from me and a strong recommendation for this very delicious magnum bottle of Beaujolais. It’s a Kermit Lynch import and should be widely available…it’s worth some extra effort to find.
It was strikingly similar to the Domaine de la Prébende Beaujolais 2014 from the same producer and that sells at a similar price point. The difference is probably only the packaging.
She said: Ruby red color, opaque, with lots of irregularly spaced legs that moved quickly at first but more slowly later. To be honest the wine was better than the dinner that was a disaster and why we had Beaujolais with it. We had the Beaujolais the day before with appetizers and half the bottle was left over, which was lucky because it was very good with the dinner. The aroma needed coaxing but after a few swirls of the glass was full of ripe fruit that continued into the mouth and long finish. The body was medium, the tannins soft and pleasant. I really enjoyed the wine with the dinner and sipping afterwards and would buy it again. It’s a bargain wine to be sure!
