Don’t you dare keep scrolling! Still here? Good. Now that we have your attention, we plan to keep it with a truly high-quality, high-value wine that, sadly, often gets overlooked. Cru Beaujolais used to squeak by in the wine world as an annoying little sister of pinot noir – but recently Somms and critics alike have flipped this underdog’s story on its head. Cru Beaujolais is now a darling find for people looking for great Pinotesque wines without the pinot price point. We now share a TRUE star that’s won a 93-POINT rating and comes from one of Moulin-à-Vent’s highest regarded sites, Rochegrès. Now 47% OFF, this is a wine you don’t want to miss!

A 100% gamay noir, this wine is delectable with combined red fruit and perfumey red floral notes akin to your favorite pinot noir. Made from 80-year-old vines in a tiny production of only 440 cases, it’s a true treasure, dancing delicately with a strong minerality and structure lent from the manganese- and iron-loaded rocky granite soils that the grapes grew amidst. On the nose, you’ll catch a bouquet of hibiscus and peony, accompanied by flavors of cranberry, crushed raspberry, and ripe currants. It toes the line of pretty and powerful, finishing off with a savory flair of graphite, roasted herbs, and gravelly rocks to play off all that gorgeous fruit. For less than $20, not many wines can do all of THAT, and drink superbly now with even more promise to gracefully develop over the next decade or two!

The guy behind the wine is Patrick Tranchard, a top cru Beaujolais winemaker since 1994. He took over his father’s domaine, which has farmed these same plots since 1960. One thousand feet above sea level, the vineyard is entirely planted on a hillside along the boundary that separates Beaujolais from Burgundy’s Maconnais region. It’s a gem of a site that has helped elevate the appellation of Moulin-À-Vent to become one of the most revered crus of Beaujolais. Trust us – this is one you won’t be disappointed you took the leap on… especially when it’s under $20 for such a powerful, well-rounded, polished red that will impress for years!

93 Wine Enthusiast -
A mix of granite and manganese soils gives this wine from a top vineyard area an impressive structure. Wood aging has added a perfumed, polished character. The wine will age. Drink from 2024. — Roger Voss
