2020 Beaujolais: Beaujolais beyond Nouveau

2020 Beaujolais: Beaujolais beyond Nouveau | WineMadeEasy.com

The 12 appellations that make up the French wine region Beaujolais produce much more than the simple table wines that appear every November. The 2020 vintage showcases these more complex expressions of the Gamay grape, which improve with age just like those "other" wines from Burgundy. All of these selections are 90+ point-rated AND under $30!

Over thirty wines from the region are available now at winemadeeasy.com.

  1. Domaine de la Madone Beaujolais-Villages Le Perréon

    2020 / 750 ml. | Item#56547

    RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 19th Aug 2021
    The 2020 Beaujolais-Villages Le Perréon is another fine success, wafting from the glass with beautifully pure aromas of cherries, raspberries, plums and peonies. Medium to full-bodied, ample and succulent, with supple tannins and an enveloping core of juicy fruit, it’s refreshing and gourmand. This head-turning bistro red is already drinking well.

  2. Jean-Marc Burgaud Morgon Côte du Py

    2020 / 750 ml. | Item#56403

    RP9494 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 19th Aug 2021
    The 2020 Morgon Côte du Py is one of the region’s most dependable classics, unfurling in the glass with notes of cassis, sweet berry fruit, spices and rose petals. Medium to full-bodied, ample and layered, with lively acids, powdery tannins and a seamless, complete profile, it concludes with a long, mouthwatering finish.
    VN9494 pts. - Vinous - Aug 2021
    The 2020 Morgon Côte du Py represents a blend of six hectares from around the climat, each with its own attributes. It has an intense bouquet of black cherries, black olive and saline notes, all very well defined with wonderful focus. The palate is medium-bodied with silky-smooth tannins, superb mineralité and a harmonious finish featuring black cherries, blueberry, blood orange and citrus fruit, full of nervosité and admirably persistent. Burgaud said that he had been advised to bottle the various plots separately, but I think this blend represents more than the sum of its parts.

  3. Château Thivin Côte de Brouilly

    2020 / 750 ml. | Item#55975

    RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 19th Aug 2021
    The 2020 Côte de Brouilly is already very expressive, bursting with aromas of ripe berry fruit, plums and cherries mingled with hints of raw cocoa and spices. Medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, it’s rich and fleshy, with powdery tannins, lively acids and a sapid finish. In style, this is more muscular than the more elegant 2019, but both represent benchmarks for Beaujolais in their respective vintages.

    RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 19th Aug 2021
    The 2020 Régnié Vallières is terrific, offering up aromas of cherries, plums and sweet spices. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and succulent, with lively acids, powdery tannins and a long, flavorful finish, it’s pure and seamless, with impeccable balance despite the extremes of the vintage.

  5. Clos de la Roilette Fleurie

    2020 / 750 ml. | Item#55787

    RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 19th Aug 2021
    Wafting from the glass with aromas of raspberries, plums, rose petals and sweet spices, the 2020 Fleurie is medium to full-bodied, ample and layered, with a fleshy core of fruit, fine tannins and succulent acids, concluding with a perfumed finish. After the ethereal, classically proportioned 2019, the 2020 represents a return to the richer register that followers of this estate will remember from recent vintages, such as 2018, 2017 and 2015.
    VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Aug 2021
    Vivid ruby. Spice-accented red and dark berries on the perfumed nose, along with smoky mineral and floral accents. Sappy, penetrating raspberry and boysenberry flavors show fine definition and spicy cut. In a concentrated yet lively style, finishing long and gently sweet, with a repeating berry note and polished tannins adding gentle grip.

  6. Jean-Marc Burgaud Morgon Grand Cras

    2020 / 750 ml. | Item#56782

    RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 19th Aug 2021
    Aromas of cherries, wild berries, rose petals and licorice introduce the 2020 Morgon Grand Cras, a medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping wine that’s deep and layered. Built around bright acids and melting tannins, it’s ample but precise, concluding with a long, expansive finish. This is a particular success chez Burgaud this year.

    2020 / 750 ml. | Item#56865

    VN9191 pts. - Vinous - Aug 2021
    Deep violet color. Displays candied red berry, smoky mineral, potpourri and star anise qualities on the incisive nose. Juicy and penetrating in the mouth, offering mineral-accented raspberry, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors and a hint of botanical herbs. Finishes spicy and very long, with lingering florality and harmonious tannins.
