Daniel Bouland Chiroubles Beaujolais 2012
Brand Daniel Bouland
The elegant and pure nose wafts from the glass in a melange of cherries, quince, fresh thyme, woodsmoke, a fine base of soil and lovely, early autumnal notes redolent of acorns.
On the palate the wine is fullish, focused and tangy, with a good core of fruit, a slightly herbal streak running through the middle, modest tannins, bright acids and a long, bouncy finish. Good juice for relatively near-term consumption. - J.G.
