"Domaine des Billards is one of my absolute favorite wines in all of Beaujolais, as it ages impeccably well and is always as good as the growing conditions of the particular season will allow. The 2014 is not yet released here in the states, but a sample was air-freighted in right before this article was completed, so that it could be included in this feature.

The bouquet is still very primary in profile, but very deep and pure at the same time, and it is quite clear that the 2014 will vie with the 2011 for the greatest wine produced at Domaine des Billards since the surreal 2005. The youthful nose is a fine blend of red and black cherries, pomegranate, nutskin, dark soil tones, a bit of bitter chocolate, fresh thyme and violets in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and adolescent, with a potentially sappy core nicely wrapped in structural elements, modest tannins, fine acidity and great length and grip on the still very primary finish.

This wine routinely gets more red fruity as it ages, and when it starts out this black fruity I always take that as a very, very good sign for its ultimate evolution in the bottle. This is a beautiful wine in the making." ~ JG
