Jennifer Havers rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Beautiful and an excellent price too. Aromas of red cherry and raspberry with some black pepper and a hint of graphite. Medium bodied, with bright, mouthwatering acidity, ripe, fresh berry notes, and a spicy, mineral finish. Enjoy with pork, grilled chicken, or cedar planked salmon.




Natalie's Review

Manoir du Carra Beaujolais Villages 2017, Bordeaux A.C., France: Produced from 100% Gamay from old vines Gamay that are between 70 and 100 years old. Grapes undergo semi-carbonic maceration for 10-12 days and the wine is aged in large oak foudres for three to four months. The wine is unfiltered. Ruby red in the glass with dark cherry, blackberry and pepper spice aromas on the nose. Generous on the palate with bright cherry, dark berry and pepper spice on the palate. Finishes long and elegant. Domaine Manoir du Carra is located in the small town of Denice, and the estate dates back to 1850. The property is now run by Jean-Noël Sambardier, the fifth generation of his family to oversee winemaking here. Drink: 2020-2022. 14735 13% D 750 mL  $15.95 Score: 89/100.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
