Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A hearty Gamay Noir from the Julienas Crus Beaujolais. Dominant notes include spice, pepper, wet stone minerality and cranberry. Enjoy pairing this medium-bodied, grippy, high acid red wine with stews and braises. Tasted Oct 2016. @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Old vines gamay with medium plus body, medium plus fine tannins, cherry, red berry, cranberry. Silky mouthfeel, grippy tannins, a pleasant surprise. @jonsteeves rated 88/100 - bespoketastings.ca
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Medium purple, and surprisingly dark for a Gamay. The aromas are bright and include cherry, banana, blueberry. Mouth-feel is silky, has a little fine tannin, and the taste is mainly tart cherry. Great acidity.
The 2014 vintage of the Gamay-based JuliƩnas Vieilles Vignes is made from grapes that grow on vines aged 50- to 80-years-old. Tannins are smoothing out. - Community Wine Review
