The 2017 Cru Beaujolais Wines of Daniel Bouland

According to The Wine Advocate's William Kelley, "The Beaujolais is coming of age."

When you taste Daniel Bouland's stunning 2017 line-up this weekend, we think you'll agree.

In his most recent regional report from September 2018, Kelley went on to say, "This bucolic landscape’s rolling hills may seem like an unlikely background for a revolution, but its hard-working wine growers, persevering in the face of entrenched stereotypes and marginal economics, are producing some of France’s most exciting wines."

Likewise, we're excited to invite you to join us this Saturday from noon to 4pm as we spotlight 6 beautiful 92+-point cuvées from acclaimed winemaker Daniel Bouland's 2017 Cru Beaujolais line-up!

Daniel Bouland is a great producer of old-fashioned Morgon.

As part of a movement of independent-minded Beaujolais producers who bucked the region's trend toward mass-marketed wines in the 1980's, Daniel fully embraces natural winemaking—patiently waiting for grapes to ripen before picking, sharply reducing chemical use in the vineyards, hand-harvesting, and fermenting with ambient yeast.

The results are wines with a sense of place and stunning purity.

From less than 7 hectares of old vines in the Douby, Côte de Py, and Delys, lieux of Morgon, plus small parcels in Chiroubles and Cote de Brouilly, Bouland makes wines that can age 20 years, and are comparable to fine Côte de Nuits Burgundies.

The Wine Advocate'sWIlliam Kelley has raved about Bouland's 2017 line-up, specifically highlighting the 2 Corcelette cuvées (94 points apiece) as "brilliant" and "mouthwatering," and the old-vine Morgon Delys (96 points) as "a stunning wine" borne of "utterly classical" winemaking.
