girin 2013 l’ancestrale

Update 19.7.2017(20.7.2017)billn

Probably the best producer of straight Beaujolais…

2013 Domaine Girin, Beaujolais l’Ancestrale
Quite deep colour. A nose that starts fresh but seems to body-build, taking on more aromatic volume and weight. The nose is quite nice, but the palate is even tastier than I’m expecting – wide, decently concentrated and with a little rigorous lick of acidity as you head into the finish – I find 2013s of all levels a little like this for the moment – but they are definitely becoming more friendly. Tasty wine and of-course an absolute steal when you think of the pricing.
Rebuy – Yes
