One of the best Beaujolais I've tried in years - just the right balance of body for the beef and acidity for the egg (when matched with Café Cùil's beef brisket rarebit with poached hen's egg).

Old vines give this gamay great heart. Lively, ripe and firm, this is perfect to pair with fillet steak.

It's a statement wine, brooding with dark cherries and plums, but with a lightness of touch brought in by raspberries and a floral note. A prickly spice emboldens the palate, together with ripe tannins. A steak, with a cheeky teaspoon of horseradish, was a perfect match.

I'm a committed evangelist for the pleasures of Beaujolais and, for those who may think they prefer wines with more weight, there's no better introduction than Moulin-a-Vent. Considered to be the Beaujolais with most cellar potential, it also tends to be the appellation that shows the densest fruit. Made at a resurgent estate after being purchased by the Parinet family, this is a really fine example made from 50-year-old vines. There are layers of cherry and summer berry fruit here, but it's the dense and spicy palate that proves a fine match for food. The producers suggest chicken with truffle oil, but we actually matched it to some beef and shitake mushrooms in black pepper sauce and it was superb.

A serious rendition of cru Beaujolais, from an estate in conversion to organic agriculture and 60- to 100-year-old vines. Twenty percent was aged in oak for 18 months. There's an immediate firmness on the nose, a liquorice bite to cherry skin and a touch of raspberry. In the mouth savoury and sappy, the bright acidity and tight tannins adding lots of gastronomic appeal. The oak adds a polish, the fruit nicely poised between sweet and bitter, and the finish long. A fine expression of gamay and Moulin-à-Vent. 91/100

Cited as the 'King of Beaujolais', if you're after a wine to swoon over, this Moulin-A-Vent has Sunday best written all over it. A pretty expression, but with the intensity you'd expect from this famous region., it's sleek and elegant with rounded black cherry and raspberry fruit, nuances of flowers, a touch of rose petal and sweet spice and everything glides beautifully along with freshness and finesse in spades. Delicious with cold ham, pates and seared duck breast, and bound to prompt a cheeseboard. A winner.

From vines of up to 100 years old this is a powerful but balanced Beaujolais from one of the finest Crus. Silky black fruits, cedarwood spice and structured tanins make this a wine able to cellar for years to come, if you can wait. It's terrifically tasty right now.

... represents great value. Here gamay produces a denser red than most Beaujolais and is vinified in traditional style rather than through carbonic maceration which tends to produce wines with lower tannin. This perhaps gives this wine a more Burgundian style and it certainly has enough power to match lamb chops, duck breasts or, dare I say it [for Easter], rabbit.
