Beaujolais Primeur, Selene 2020 (Beaujolais, France)
Beaujolais Nouveau! Sylvere Trichard is an up-and-comer making natural wines from his family's vines in Blace, just south of Brouilly. His uncle had been farming these 4 hectares organically since 1998, but when Sylvere took over in 2012, after working at Domaine Belluard and Domaine Lapalu, he went full biodynamic in the vineyards and stopped using sulfur in the cellar, except sometimes a little at bottling. Generally his wines are semi-carbonic and aged in a combination of concrete and old barrel, but this one is full carbonic all in concrete. Juicy, chillable and chuggable with a dark cherry note, dried flowers and spice with mouthwatering acidity. Drink this by the gallon.
