Domaine du Penlois Heritage 2014
This Heritage Penlois Beaujolais-Village red, located between the Crus of Morgon, Fleurie and Moulin-à-Vent, stood up to its hype from the SommSelect folks. They claimed this Burgundy-esque Beaujolais would please, particularly with its $20 price point.
And they were right. The nose was a little funky, with earthy notes, but underneath the initial aromas was the tell-tale sign of Gamay – cranberry, strawberry, raspberries, savory herbs and a touch of forest floor. This will be on my Thanksgiving table.
