OH: arghh, corked, wowser, awful, got that from 3-4” away from the glass, fortunately two bottles of it, Beaujolais, but I’m still recovering from the overpowering mustiness in my nose.


#43

Bright & very obviously Gamay, but it’s done well. Bright fruited - but darker - cherries violet, not raspberry bubblegum. Pepper. Flint edge. Definitely get the church smell - like smokey bergamot or wood oil incense…


#44

I accidentally drank the whole glass in one go without thinking. I think thats a good/worrying sign.


#45

Really bright and fresh. Juicy fruits, berries and cherries, good intensity of flavour.


#46

Completely agree, the smell made me want to try straight away!


#47

Nothing worse! Sympathies!


#48

I usually associate Beaujolais with raspberry bubblegum too and wasn’t getting any here.


#49

Oh no!!


#50

Pencil shavings for me too.


#51

Mrs CC: going very well with strong cheddar, Comte and vintage gouda.


#52

Yikes! Let Member Services know and they’ll put a credit on your account. :slight_smile:

I love this! Juicy, fresh, big-flavoured - I can see why @Freddy can drink this so fast! :joy: I’m getting through it pretty quickly too!

It’s only 12% too - nice to find a lower-alcohol wine not low on flavour?!


#53

I’m recovering, bottle two is a bit too cold, spicy raspberries :slightly_smiling_face:


#54

I really like how light it is, this goes down very easily (a bit too easily actually!)


#55

Lovely fresh tangy finish. This is moreish !


#56

If we were allowed to post one-word replies, mine would be this: smashable.


#57

Nice. Juicy and soft in the mouth. Refreshing. And lots of cherries😋


#58

Dry, mid+ acid, gentle tannins. Fairly punchy palate: cherries, blackberry, a real floral edge - like if potpourri tasted nice… flinty/smokey edge, decent length too. GV.


#59

Going down far too easily! Lovely, juicy fruit, little bit of pepperiness on the finish. Acidity is present enough to keep it from being flabby.


#60

Shall we do food matches and marks out of 10 all in one go? We’re nearly caught up now. :wink:


#61

I’m really liking it too. The lower alcohol is a refreshing change. Quaffable, as evidenced by my empty glass!
