2015 Beaujolais: Monumental But Often Atypical

The 2015 vintage in Beaujolais has attracted more attention from both consumers and the trade than any vintage in my experience. While I tasted a higher percentage of outstanding wines from 2015 than ever before, many of them aren’t exactly what I would call classic renditions of the region.

Cul de Sac is Rome’s best wine bar. Authentic down to earth, hearty, mostly Roman dishes, a very good selection of charcuterie and cheeses, and a truly hard to lift, huge wine list all make a night at Cul de Sac memorable.

2015 Jean-Marc Burgaud Morgon Côte du Py ($21.00) 93

2015 Jean-Marc Burgaud Morgon Côte du Py, 93 points

This Beaujolais from Burgaud is his flagship bottling. The wine is at once powerful and graceful, it shows intense, mineral-tinged blue fruit, spice and floral character, seamless texture and possesses the depth and structure to age. (JR)
