Domaine de la Madone 2011 Nouveau Gamay (Beaujolais-Villages)

With some weight, this is a smooth red-fruited wine with just a hint of bananas. The balance works well, marrying acidity and light tannins. Fruity and attractive.

Domaine de la Madone 2009 Beaujolais Villages Nouveau Gamay (Beaujolais-Villages)

A well-made, tightly structured wine emphasizing tannins and berry fruits. It would almost be worth aging, with its weight and dry texture. The fruit is solid and firm.

Domaine de la Madone 2008 Le Perreon Gamay (Beaujolais-Villages)

A rich style, with ripe black fruits, touches of fig and firm tannins. For a Villages, this is powerful and dense, with ripe, warm licorice. Acidity comes through finally, giving a lift of freshness but not taking away from the richness.
