Raspberry, herbs, earth. — a month ago
Fee-nominal…the winner (so far) of the 2010’s PV challenge. At 11.5 years from harvest, this beauty from Matthieu Finot sang like a concentrated Right Bank medoc…layers of dark berries, violet & herbs with smoky matting. Still proving enough tannic punch to cut through house grilled cheeseburgers and squash. Bold yet balance. Thank you Ellen for this wonderful gift￼ :) — 5 days ago
Raspberry, stems, coffee, hung meat, asian spice, orange peel, tapenade, blood and stones. Feral, wild, moderate frame and earthy with a freshness to it. As always a layered and lengthy wine that evolved gloriously over dinner. The firm tannin profile and amount of perfume gave this a distinctive old school feel. — 20 days ago

What a journey! Spritz to the taste and feel at first and slowly turning into a silky smooth, beautiful and juicy red. Lots of flavor, deep cherry and hints of iron/leather. — 23 days ago
But…there it was. It sang it’s siren song.
N: Big , beefy, dirty red beet, musky black cherries. Smoke and tar.
P: Black cherries, blood, iron, earth, dirt,
It’s said the Coté du Py Gamay vines are 100 years +. It shows. A knockout structured Beaujolais that’s always a fave. Delicious, if I was 40, I’d make plans to stash some away for 20 years.
A bit saved, day two, blacker and more tannic.
To quote Romain..” I love it.”!!!
