2019 Morgon, Hospices de Beaujeu, Beaujolais, France
Wow, this is one of the most vivid and flavoursome Beaujolais we have tried in a long time. The deep colour and floral aroma are very enticing, and then on the palate the fruit really comes through. There is a little bit of grip to the tannins, making this a little fuller than many reds from this region, and this should see it to a couple of years of development if you can resist it for that long.

2020 Fleurie, Domaine du Bois de L’Oise, Beaujolais, France
Wonderfully fresh and vibrant Gamay. It's very much fruit to the fore, with raspberry and cherry flavours dominating. There is some good texture here too, making it smooth on the palate.
Can be served chilled in the sun, but equally enjoyable as an evening drink with anything grilled.
