Beaujolais Villages “Le Chapital” 2009 - Vincent Lacondemine

WARNING! This is not like any Beaujolais Villages you will have tasted! Or will ever taste again (2009 exceptional vintage and Vincent has retired passing the baton to his nephew Jérôme who made the 2019 Beaujolais Villages Nouveau we have). Its quite remarkable and complex! It’s a great example of how Gamay can “PINOTER” become like Pinot Noir with age. It’s a riot of tertiary complexity, forest floor, meaty, leather, earth, fig and prune and evolves a layer of dried black fruits on the final finish. Stunning!
