The 2019 Domaine des Chers Julienas Vieilles Vignes from Arnaud Briday begins with pleasing aromas of black cherry, strawberry and some floral notes plus a bit of that signature Beaujoalis bubble gum aroma and a touch of black pepper.
It only takes one sip to know that this is some darn good Beaujolais! It's elegant but still features good depth on the juicy fruit. Touches of earthiness reveal themselves on the mid-palate and lead into the finish.
Speaking of that finish, it's dry, smooth, a bit grippy, and quite long with lingering juicy fruit and some dusty tannins. This is lovely!
