Turn Back The Clock Pricing - Long-Haul Beaujolais:
2017 Clos de la Roilette Fleurie Cuvée Tardive

Roilette's Cuvée Tardive is one of Beaujolais' longest lived and most profound wines. There are few bottles of Beaujolais that have the track record for aging, can deliver incredible value, and are as loved as Tardive.

Morgon's Master In Fleurie: 2018 Foillard Fleurie

Foillard is famous for making some of the greatest examples of Morgon. Still, his much less available Fleurie stands dangerously close to being the Platonic ideal of Fleurie.

2018 Métras Fleurie VV Magnums

When we tally up the mind-bending bottles of Beaujolais that we've drunk, Métras looms very large. The examples are too numerous to list, but most recently, there was an expectation-defying bottle of 1996 Fleurie. Catching a bottle of Métras when it's on is simply a profound experience. Of course, the magnum format only makes it better. 

Métras On Tip-Toe: 2018 Métras Beaujolais Fleurie Printemps

In recent years, Printemps has snuck up on us as one of the most fascinating wines of the lineup. Printemps has Métras' indescribable textural presence, with an added beautiful energy. It's the most dynamic wine of Métras' lineup. 

Dutraive's North Star:
2018 Famille Dutraive Saint Amour Clos du Chapitre

Dutraive's wines are seductive in their clarity, soil-inflected depth and sheer joyful drinkability. Dutraive's wines started to be imported in 2009. The wines were so compelling that they became an overnight sensation. At this point, Dutraive is firmly situated as one of the region's most sought after and beloved producers.

Beaujolais On Tip-Toe: 2017 Metras Fleurie Printemps

The 2017 Printemps is special. Over the past handful of years, Printemps has snuck up on us as one of the most fascinating wines of the lineup. 

The King of Fleurie: 2017 Métras Fleurie VV

Métras' Beaujolais have been fixtures at the store for over a decade. It's difficult to imagine saying anything new about Yvon Métras and his wines. It's also hard to convey the level of excitement that we have when a new vintage is released.

Long-Haul Beaujolais:
2017 Clos de la Roilette Fleurie Cuvée Tardive

Roilette's Cuvée Tardive is one of Beaujolais' longest lived and most profound wines. There are few bottles of Beaujolais that have the track record for aging, can deliver the incredible value and are as loved as Tardive. It is a wine that we buy in case quantities every vintage.

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. 

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.

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.

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.

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.

Painfully Rare, Extreme Fleurie:
2015 Métras Fleurie VV

Nailing down decent quantities of 2015 Métras has been an adventure. Métras is always difficult to find, but it's been incredibly difficult in 2015. Just to highlight the rarity, there are only two other listings for the Fleurie VV in the country.

Irresistible Deliciousness: 2015 Dutraive Fleurie Chapelle Des Bois

Just over a week ago, we offered Dutraive's 2015 Grand'Cour VV. It sold out in a flash. Today, we turn to Dutraive's Chapelle Des Bois. Chapelle des Bois shows a very different dimension to Dutraive's style. Chapelle des Bois and Grand' Cour can be viewed as bookends. If Grand' Cour is "Fleurie with teeth" in its structure and power, Chapelle des Bois is more delicate and feminine.

Not To Be Slept On
Fleurie With Teeth: 2015 Dutraive Fleurie Grand'Cour VV

Jean-Louis Dutraive has firmly established himself as one of the top talents in Beaujolais. Six years ago, the wines were unheard of in the U.S. Now, buyers across the city are fighting for their allocation. 

Long-Haul Beaujolais - Half-Bottle Edition:
2014 Roilette Fleurie Cuvee Tardive Half-Bottles

This parcel of half-bottles of Tardive was impossible to resist. Tardive has long been one of our core Beaujolais and 2014 is clearly an important vintage for the wine. 

2013 & 2014 Foillard Fleurie - Picture Perfect Fleurie

Foillard's Fleurie stands dangerously close to being the Platonic ideal of Fleurie. Foillard is famous for making some of the greatest examples of Morgon. The fact that he can turn out a Fleurie of such glorious typicity really highlights just how sensitive of a winemaker Foillard is.
