Fresh hay on the nose, wet wheat field and moss. Light and living, charged with herbs, cranberry, and strawberry. Jean's wines, like the Beaujolais itself, have a way of bringing you squarely home. Each cuvee is unmistakably from here. The wine smells like the earth right before it rains and tastes like the pine forests high on the hills and the wild fruits in the underbrush. With vines unaltered by herbicides or pesticides, and every grape cluster twisted from the vine by hand, this is pure Beaujolais, and there is nothing better.
