“Jean-Jacques Parinet purchased this 18th-century domaine in 2009 and, working with his son, Edouard, set to renovating the winery and its 91.5 acres of vines. The property produced impressive 2014s, including this cool, racy, umami-driven red. This comes from an 8.4-acre parcel on a granite plateau; it was destemmed, cold-soaked with pre-fermentation pumpovers, and aged 17 months in French oak (20 percent new). It may not be traditional Beaujolais winemaking, but it created a beautiful wine, with scents of wild herbs, deep flavors of woodland berries and remarkable freshness. Complex and youthful, this will likely be at its best five or six years from the vintage, and may well last much longer.”
