Quartz Chénas Gamay 2016

Charming, floral, vegetal nose. Fruity and tense mouth, with beautiful floral notes (peony) and a beautiful almost saline mineral line that leads to the tasting. It's a very nice balance between greed and refinement, with superb drinkability. Gamay as I like it💕

Nez charmeur, floral, végétal. Bouche fruitée et tendue, avec toujours de belles notes fleuries (pivoine) et une belle ligne minérale presque saline qui conduit la dégustation. C’est un très belle équilibre entre gourmandise et raffinement, avec une superbe buvabilité.Le Gamay comme j’aime 💕

La Réserve d'Amélie Beaujolais-Villages Chardonnay 2012

Well it has been a good run, but finally we're at the end of older Beaujolais Blanc in our cellar. This particular bottle seems to be better than most priors...

Nose has lemon peel, oxidized yellow apple, hay, moist sand, wet flint and dehydrated pineapple.

Palate has ripe yellow apple, ripe pear, (light) honey, essence of strawberry, faint green herbs, fading acidity with medium finish.

It's been a great wine run with Charvet. I'd highly suggest seeking Beaujolais Blanc's and cellar them for short-medium term enjoyment.

Eponym' Les Charmes Morgon Gamay 2017

Very good. Licorice, star anise, violet, dark purple fruit. Ripe gamay character - a bit riper with less acid than I prefer - still very transparent. — 6 days ago

Côte du Py Morgon Gamay 2011

This bottle was a lovely gift from our friend Tim who visited Omaha this past Spring. Our only instructions were to enjoy it together with food; challenge accepted! While I have experienced many wines produced by Foillard, this was my first with his “Cote du Py”. The wine pours a deep ruby color; slightly hazy in the glass. On the nose, at least initially, there are signs of some Brett giving a barnyard characteristic but that sort of blows off (or at least becomes less obvious) with cherries, earth, blackened poblano, underripe plum, and purple Sweet Tarts taking a more central role. On the palate, it’s mostly dark cherry and blackberries showing very little in the way of evolution. Medium+ acid, medium- tannin. The finish was super long. I was really impressed how young this wine was coming across; hardly an indication of anything that would indicate ten years of age. Yet more proof that Beaujolais can cellar quite gracefully. We loved how this paired with grilled rack of lamb and a light salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, garbanzo beans, mozzarella and prosciutto. Grazie Tim! — 12 days ago

Fleurie Gamay 2011

Nose is green a bit.

Palate is still fresh. A bit vegetal / herbal. But fun.

"Cuvée Corcelette" Morgon Gamay 2017

After a 2 weeks pause for (very mild) health reasons I thought it would be good to pop a bottle I had kept on the side for such occasion.
Cola, cherry, hay and an irony thing one the nose, very inviting. The palate is superlative. Massive acid backbone, superb juicy cherry fruit all along, great width, soft mouthfeel, a little bit of cherry liqueur on the sides too, ample mid palate with a slight drying effect like a subtle brush and a finish with those same cherry juice and cherry liqueur notes. This is so beautiful...

Nova Fleurie Gamay 2019

Domaine Bertrand - nova - fleurie 2019

This is a fleurie without any added SO2 and in a vineyard that is in its 3 years of transitionning into being organic. This is the last of the 4 wines I brought back from the bertrand vineyard (as in the last one I taste again as I brought a case of each) . Again please pay them a visit if you can, they are great hosts with great wines.
This is probably my favorite wine in their line up.
The nose is great with cherry, a bit of cherry liqueur too, hay and an earthy thing too. The palate is extremely well balanced with a great matter, a bright cherry fruit, a soft and easy mouthfeel, a great mid palate with a spherical form, some gentle tannins caressing the tongue and adding some complexity. The finish is just plain fruit for ever. This is one great beaujo experience!
