Domaine Pascal Aufranc, Les Cerisiers Les Crots Julienas 2016, Beaujolais, France
Tasting Note: A somewhat-reserved Julienas with good fruit structure.
Deep-intensity ruby in color, this wine has a medium-intensity nose of black plum, raspberry, strawberry and violet blossom.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied Cru Beaujolais is filled with well-integrated, medium-plus-intensity, red-and-black-fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and slightly-velvety, medium tannin.
The wine is balanced and completes with a medium finish.
Price: $17 (I paid $14)
