Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Bright, red & shiny with an upfront nose of bright mixed berries and
great gamay aromas. The taste is very characteristic of Gamay with many layers to
please you. It is smooth, well balanced & structured with a long finish. Perfect with
roast chicken or lighter meat dishes. A great example of a well made Beaujolais.
"After being delighted to discover Jean Pierre Large’s wines with his 2006 (reviewed in issue 178) I somehow, reprehensibly, missed out on tasting either of the two subsequent vintages, but the Domaine Cheysson 2009 Chiroubles confirms the existence of major talent, not to mention the presumption of excellent terroir. Red raspberry and red currant mingle with black tea and peony in the nose, then combine vividly – right down to the tart, invigoratingly bitter crunch of their seeds – on the palate, with smoky, saline, and alkaline accents. There is a saline, exuberantly tart berry-brightness to the finish that positively exhilarates. The 2006 was still lovely 12 months ago, and I would expect this exceptional value 2009 to be worth following for 5-6 years.
The Wine Advocate
"Bright violet. Sexy, expansive aromas of black raspberry and cherry preserves, with floral and spicecake nuances and slow-mounting minerality. Energetic, mineral-driven red and dark berry flavors show alluring sweetness and a suave floral overtone. This seamless, pure Beaujolais finishes with excellent clarity and lingering floral and red berry notes. As delicious as it is right now, I'll bet that it will be even better in a few years and will hold for a good while after that. Cheysson's wine is raised in cement and stainless steel tanks and never sees wood."

(boe-show-lay) Upon hearing Beaujolais, many think of the large celebration for wine that comes out the 3rd week of November, that year's vintage of Beaujolais Nouveau. But the region of Beaujolais, situated at the bottom of the Burgundy AC, is more than just the nouveau. Some Beaujolais wines can be kept (gasp!) for up to 10 years! Those are usually the Cru Beaujolais and are...Read More About Beaujolais
Gamay is a pale colored grape, best associated with the region of
Beaujolas. In fact, few regions or grapes
are so wholly intertwined with one another. After being universally rejected by the rest of
Burgundy in the
14th century, Gamay found its niche a bit further south, in Beaujolais. Beyond that part of France, Gamay
can also be...Read More About Gamay
