Dutraive From On High
2017 Dutraive Fleurie Carolon

Without a doubt, Dutraive's Beaujolais are some of the most fascinating and delicious wines coming out of the region.

Jean-Louis Dutraive has quickly emerged as one of Beaujolais' best and most sought-after producers. 

Lapierre Rarity Revisited:
2016 Lapierre Morgon Sans Soufre

Lapierre's Morgon is one of the most wildly delicious wines in existence. The Sans Soufre bottling takes it to another level.

The Master of Morgon
2015 Foillard Morgon Eponym

There are few producers in Beaujolais who turn out wines with the same level of clarity and purity as Foillard. When you taste through Foillard's line up side-by-side, it becomes very clear just how sensitive the winemaking is. Each wine is vinified exactly the same, but the differences are striking.

The King of Fleurie - Lowest Pricing:
2016 Métras Fleurie VV

Métras' Fleurie VV is easily one of the best wines of the vintage. We love Métras in vintages like 2016. In these years, they show vividness, delineation and straight-up joyful drinking.

The Master of Morgon Magnum Edition:
2016 Foillard Morgon Côte du Py Magnums

Côte du Py is one of Beaujolais' great vineyards. Foillard is undoubtedly the master of the site. A couple of weeks ago we offered bottles of Foillard's gorgeous 2016 Côte du Py. Today, we're happy to offer a modest parcel of magnums.  

The Master of Morgon: 2016 Foillard Morgon Côte du Py

Foillard's Côte du Py is as pure and captivating as Beaujolais gets. At this point, Foillard's Côte du Py doesn't need much of an introduction. Still, it's a wine we're so fond of that we feel the need to say at least a few words.

Long-Haul Beaujolais - Half-Bottle Edition:
2016 Roilette Fleurie Cuvee Tardive Half-Bottles

Most of you know the deal with Tardive. Alain Coudert set out to make the anti-nouveau, a bottle to showcase just how complex, structured and ageworthy Beaujolais can be. He definitely proved his point - Tardives with 10 or 15 years of age can be shockingly good.

The Master of Morgon: 2016 Foillard Morgon Corcelette

Foillard's Corcelette has quickly become one of our favorite bottles in Beaujolais. When Corcelette is on, it's one of the most beguiling bottles of Beaujolais around.

Jaw-Dropping Fleurie: 2016 Julien Sunier Fleurie

Without a doubt, Julien Sunier has become one of Beaujolais' top young winemakers. For us, it's tasting his Fleurie that makes this clear.

Rare Métras Magnums -
2016 Moulin-à-Vent VV

We should set expectations right away. There's very little available. In 2006, Yvon Métras purchased a mere 0.6ha of Moulin-à-Vent near his home. In general, Métras of any kind is very hard to find in quantity. Magnums of his Moulin-à-Vent VV are close to impossible to land in quantity. 

The King of Fleurie Magnum Edition:
2016 Metras Fleurie VV Magnums

A couple weeks ago, we offered bottles of Métras' 2016 Fleurie VV. Today, we're very excited to return with magnums.

2016 Dutraive Fleurie & Brouilly VV

Dutraive has been firmly cemented as one of Beaujolais' premier talents. Without a doubt, they are some of the most fascinating and delicious wines coming out of the region. 

2016 Clos de la Roilette Fleurie Cuvée Tardive

For Beaujolais fans, Roilette's Cuvée Tardive occupies a very special place.

Lapierre Rarity:
2016 Lapierre Morgon Sans Soufre

Lapierre's Morgon is one of the most wildly delicious wines in existence. The Sans Soufre bottling takes it to another level.

Clarity, Energy and Wild Drinkability:
2016 Lapierre Morgon

Every vintage, we watch people stock up on Lapierre by the case. Lapierre is one of the standard-bearers of Beaujolais. If you were to rank wines on sheer drinkability, Lapierre would top the list.

Morgon's Master:
2014 Foillard Morgon Cote du Py Bottles & Magnums

Foillard is one of the undisputed great producers of Beaujolais and 2014 is easily one of the strongest Beaujolais vintages of the past decade.

The Master of Morgon:
2014 Foillard Morgon Eponyme

With the first release of Eponym in 2013, it became even more obvious how dialed dialed into terroir Foillard is.

Fleurie With Teeth - Best to Date:
2014 Dutraive Fleurie Grand'Cour VV

Jean-Louis Dutraive has emerged as one of Beaujolais' top talents. 2014 is without a doubt the best vintage that we've tasted from him.

Foillard Value:
2015 Foillard Morgon Classique

For many of us, Foillard is the master of Morgon. It's that simple.

Gamay in Silk:
2015 Foillard Morgon Corcelette

When Corcelette is on, it's one of the most beguiling bottles of Beaujolais around.

Magical Morgon, Magnum Edition
2015 Foillard Morgon Côte du Py Magnums

Last month, we offered Foillard's 2015 Côte du Py and the offer blew up. Today, we're happy to offer a very limited amount of magnums.

Morgon's Master in Fleurie:
2010 Foillard Fleurie

2010 remains one of our favorite vintages of Foillard's Fleurie. When we saw this parcel, we jumped on it.

Magical Morgon:
2015 Foillard Morgon Côte du Py

Each vintage, we amass as much of Foillard's Côte du Py as we can get. It's never enough.

Startling Agility: 2015 Metras Beaujolais

Yvon Métras' basic Beaujolais snuck up on us. In the right vintage, it can be one of our favorites of his wines.
