91pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
From vines behind Rottiers's house that touch the Moulin-à-Vent appellation boundary, the 2018 Beaujolais-Villages La Sambinerie displays a pretty bouquet of cherries, roses and red fruit compote. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, supple and fleshy, with ripe and velvety tannins, succulent acids and a flavorful finish. This is showing very well indeed. William Kelley
Our old vineyard of Beaujolais Villages is situated just behind the estate. It is a granitic terroir really next to the Moulin a Vent appellation. The vinification is short, between 7 and 9 days of semi-carbonic maceration in concrete tanks. Aging in wooden vats and barrels during 4 to 6 months get the tanins smoother. This Beauolais Villages is fruity and spicy, typical of our local terroir.
