Domaine de la Grosse Pierre, Fleurie "Bel-Air", 2018

$24.99

Acid-driven, high-resolution florality and strawberry fruit. Simpler in structure than their Morgon "Douby" and the Chiroubles "Claudius," but instantly gratifying and very pretty.

Pauline Passot is a special talent. She crafts excellent cru Beaujolais for Chiroubles-based Domaine Grosse Pierre, where she recently succeeded her parents as winemaker.

In her first vintage, Passot nailed it. These are some of the freshest and prettiest 2018s we’ve tasted, every wine in the lineup showing impressive poise and terroir-determination.

It’s clear to us that if there was a “Rookie of the Year” award for Beaujolais, Pauline would take the honors for her excellent 2018s. It’s exciting to think that there are still new names to discover, even in familiar regions like Beaujolais. Perhaps the best part is, these wines are also crazy affordable for how good they are.
