- Beaujolais-Villages "Chameroy" - The Dominion Post - Paul White:This has more guts and substabce than flash-in-the-pan nouveau Beaujolais. True to Gamay, it's packed full of soft, rich, fruity aromatics and juicy, raspberry fruit flavors nicely underpinned with ample grip and a firm acid structure. There's heaps of syrupy sweet Pinots out there that could learn a thing or two from this wine.
