Four Beaujolais Wines From Agamy

Four Beaujolais wines from Agamy, available via Enotria

After tasting the wines of Agamy in Paris (and London), they sent me a few more of their range to review.

If you are new to Beaujolais, the wines are fresh and fruited with black cherry, spice and some florality; juicy and gluggable, they are uncomplex and suitable for drinking young.

If they can be relatively expensive at the bottom, due to their popularity with the well-heeled nearby Swiss, they are also inexpensive at the top - most bottles are priced in a narrow band between £10 and £20.

All of these wines are typical and enjoyable, if not better than that. The better wines show more concentration and complexity.

Match with duck breast, salamis or rilettes.

Beaujolais-Villages, Louis Tête 2014 textbook entry-level Beaujolais with cherry fruit and spice; really enjoyable.

Brouilly, Louis Tête 2015 Black and red cherry fruit with pencil shavings, spices and florality. Fresh, vibrant and supple with good underpinnings. Good.

Beaujolais, Romany 2014 violets and fresh black cherries with spice and old-vine
substance. Vibrant and supple. Good.

Beaujolais-Villages, Domaine de l’Aubépin 2015 fuller, riper and more darkly fruited; slightly stewed and warming, but balanced and full of stuffing. Good.
