Côte de Brouilly Gamay 2013

PnP’d. Better than expected. Modestly bright red color. Earth, grass, and bing cherries on the nose. Fruit forward with some hints of spice. Nice texture and complexity. — 3 days ago

Comtesse de Vazeilles Le CLos Fleurie Gamay 2018

Beautiful Fleurie even on its second day.
Full of chocolate, liquorice, a bit gamy,
Chock full of tannins that are gentle but assertive. These have proved delicious, and with four years of age, some seriousness as well. A slight chill does great things.

Les Sept Vignes Côte de Brouilly Gamay

Vintage 2010 | I cannot recall drinking this Château Thivin before. I was blown away with this twelve year old Côte de Brouilly, that I tasted next to Bordeaux CS/M and Argentinian CS. At the first sniff I thought it to be passed away… but with aeration - I tried from several bottles with a barbecue - it opened up and made a methamorphosis from frog to princess. Beautiful blackberry and other red fruit. Vibrant taste, not showing its age. Drinking supple and giving much joy. Song of praise for Gamay! — 4 days ago

Any wine reviewer that can pen a wine’s journey as a “methamorphosis [sic] from frog to princess” simply deserves a TEN! Thank you, Peter. You made my day. 😎

Les Charmes Morgon Gamay 2020

Very nice. Nose has loads of crushed granite and crunchy dark cherry, plus a little menthol thing in the background. In the mouth, the fruit starts out super bright and juicy, then it turns minerally as the finish kicks in. Fairly big-bones, but good acids. Great value. — 5 days ago

(Pink Flower) Brouilly Gamay 2018

Presented double-blind. Wine pours a deep ruby and slightly turbid; slight staining of the tears. On the nose, bruised strawberry, some cedar notes, olive brine, cranberry and dried green herbs. On the palate, the wine is bright with mostly red fruits. There’s a slight prick to the tongue. The wine is dry with medium+ acid, medium tannin. Thought it was from Burgundy. Called 2017 Bourgognon Rouge. Dufaitre is making some really enjoyable wines. — 22 days ago

Brouilly Beaujolais 2006

These old Brouilly are really incredible! Intense notes of peppery wild strawberries, truffle evolution, undergrowth, dried flowers, blood orange.. the finish is persistent, like the fragrances of a perfume, intertwining fine tannins and endless acidity veins, with light bitters welcome.

Ces vieux Brouilly sont vraiment incroyables! Notes intenses de fraises de bois poivrées, évolution truffe, sous-bois, fleurs séchées, orange sanguine.. la finale est rémanente, tel les fragrances d’un parfum, entrelaçants tanins fins et nervures d’acidité sans fin, avec de légers amers bienvenus.

Corcelette Morgon Gamay 2020

Lovely Morgon, vivid and focused, yet with enough fruit generosity and exuberance to drink well in its youth. Nicely aromatic, with good breadth on the palate, without crossing the line into opulence or sweetness. Just perfectly ripe. Red fruited and floral, with a nice acidic streak and ripe tannins working together to provide structure. Good energy. Excellent producer of honest, pure, tasty Bojos. — a month ago
