Cote de Brouilly 'Chardignon', Roger Peguet, France 2011

from 18.95

One of the biggest revolutions in the wine world in recent years has been the discovery that Beaujolais ages really, really well. It may be too late for some people, who were put off for life by the ‘Beaujolais Nouveau’ charade that promoted wines that were too young, but Gamay has a counterintuitive ability to mature gracefully when handled diligently, despite its light weight and apparent lack of structure. This Cote de Brouilly 2011 is starting to drink beautifully now, showing many of the qualities of red Burgundy, similar in some ways to a rich Nuits-Saint-Georges, but with the top notes of a pretty Chambolle-Musigny. There’s tons of intrigue and complexity and serious depth to this beautiful wine. 14% alc. Drink now-2025.

Press review:

Jancis Robinson (Tamlyn Currin): “Such a treat to get hold of an aged Beaujolais at just the peak of its life! I'd pounce on this. Deep, dusty-plum perfume. And then a mouthful of toasted plums, white pepper, cello-sweet depth, the haunting other-path to the melody. Silky… and then it pounces with a little bit of claw. Walnut-skin texture and savouriness on the finish. Wonderful. Just wonderful. Extraordinarily fresh and ready. Still so much life. So much length. Drink now-2020” 17 points
