    Georges Descombes Regnie 2018

    $48.00in any six

    $52.00 per single bottle

    The 2018 Régnié from Georges Descombes is a finely balanced wine, even in a warmer vintage. Régnié is the most recent Cru in Beaujolais and perhaps the least well known. Stylistically the wines have a lovely velvety charm but perhaps without the minerality of some of the other Crus. They excel with an attractive fruitiness […]

    Georges Descombes Brouilly 2018

    $48.00in any six

    $52.00 per single bottle

    This Brouilly comes from 3.5 hectares on steep slopes,  farmed organically. Carbonic maceration with whole clusters then a slow vertical press to finish the fermentation. No additives, a small addition of SO2 before bottling. The 2018 shows beautifully ripe but high-toned red fruits, with lovely aromas of strawberry, blackberry and violet with herbal and citrus […]

    Georges Descombes Beaujolais Blanc 2018

    $57.00 per single bottle

    This wine made me really take note this year; I learned it’s from fruit harvested in the northern part of Beaujolais (Pruzy, near Saint-Verand) near the frontier with the Maconnais. In a way this is Georges take on what could almost be a Macon Blanc and it is certainly better than any other Beaujolais Blanc […]

    Georges Descombes Brouilly Vieilles Vignes 2017

    $68.00in any six

    $74.00 per single bottle

    Every year this is one of the great wines of Beaujolais by all measures. From 2017 the first hint at quality is, as usual, the vibrant colour. You can see the richness and depth, then the billowing perfume. Aromas are bright and crystal clear with entrancing red/black cherries and hints of sweet kirsch. The taste […]

    $68.00in any six

    $74.00 per single bottle

    Tucked away up in the hills between Morgon and Fleurie, Chiroubles has often been described as “the most Beaujolais of the ten crus of Beaujolais.” In other words, it’s everything that makes wines from this region so loveable – low alcohol, explosive flowery aromas, high-toned juicy fruit. The nose here is bright and crystal clear, […]

    Beaujolais in late January makes for an eerie landscape. The grey, cloudy skies are set against hectares of dead earth dotted with lines of stunted, gnarly vines, pruned down for the dormant stages of winter. In the morning, fog rolls over and down the hillsides and the wet clay sticks to your shoes. It’s a […]

    $79.00 per single bottle

    It is very hard indeed to find great Saint Amour, the tenth cru of Beaujolais and it’s most Northerly. It’s name connects it to Saint Valentines Day and it is allowed to release 6 weeks early compared with the other crus to be ready for the day! The big negociants grab all they can and […]
