Seven Springs Vineyard Gamay Noir 2019

At first it taste like any other higher end natty red wine. I would have believed it was Carignan or Pais no problem. But with air things came together and it’s started to actually taste like Gamay, with sweet red berries, pink peppercorn, and woodsy earth. High acid, long finish. Good, but not great. — 4 days ago

Réserve Caveau Moulin-à-vent Vieilles Vignes 2009

Pretty concentrated ruby dress. Evolved nose evoking Burgundy. In the mouth a beautiful smoothness, concentration, between evolved notes and fruit still very lively. A pretty bottle full of refinement. It can be drunk on its own.
Can still age 5/10 years, maybe more.

Jolie robe rubis concentrée. Nez évolué évoquant la Bourgogne. En bouche une belle onctuosité, de la concentration, entre notes évoluées et fruit encore bien vif. Une jolie quille pleine de raffinement. Ça se boit tout seul. Peut vieillir encore 5/10 ans voir plus.

Les Charmes Morgon Gamay 2018

Bright ruby dress. Nose cherry, crunchy red fruits, pepper, herbal points tending towards evolution fade to mineral accents. Concentration carried by a aging that expresses with balance on 2018, still full of freshness. It pinots perfectly. Racy, gouleyant. Perfect price/pleasure ratio!

Robe rubis vive. Nez cerises fruits rouges croquants, poivre, pointés végétales tendant vers l’évolution. De la concentration portée par un élevage qui s’exprime avec équilibre sur ce 2018, encore plein de fraîcheur . Ça pinote parfaitement. Morgon racé, gouleyant. Rapport prix/plaisir impec!

Arlyn Vineyard Gamay Noir 2019

Summer yum …. Killer gamay noir from Pinot/chard experts. We all need more light bodied summer reds that dance across your palate at cellar temp. Low ABV… light purple, cherry, berry, juicy sweetness with lively acid driving the fruit towards the finish. The bottle was gone too quickly with smash burgers and hand cut fries. Reminder to self: buy more next year, — 5 days ago

Domaine des Terres Dorées (Jean-Paul Brun)

Fleurie Gamay 2015

Obviously one of my favourite styles. Between lightness and aromatic intensity in an all-aerial expression typical of evolved gamay. We call this the Beaujolais-bourguignon. JP Brun is definitely a very affordable winemaking master.

Évidemment l’un de mes styles préféré. Entre légèreté et intensité aromatique dans une expression toute aérienne typique des gamay évolué. On appelle ça les Beaujolais-bourguignon. JP Brun est décidément un maître de vinification à prix très abordable.

9.4

Ravishing nose. Vivid Black cherry fruit. Lovely granite. Bursting blackberry. Leather. So focused and exuberant. Stunning aromas. 9.5 aromas. Palate is gamey, meaty and loaded with black cherry and blackberry but also has oodles of freshness and granitic cut. So sappy and pure. Perfect balance and incredible acidity. So cleansing and fresh. Lovely velvety tannins and super long. Best since the 14. A brilliant wine. Almost a 9.5. The energy here is incomparable. Benchmark bojo. — 8 days ago

"Cuvée Corcelette" Morgon Gamay 2017

Un style de Bojo assez Bourguignon, frais, fin, élégant, acidité assez élevée, du fruit rouge en quantité, très bien.

Very nice Burgundian style Bojo, acidity a little high, fresh, elegant, gorgeous fruit, very nice.

Eponym' Les Charmes Morgon Gamay 2019

Generally consistent with my last notes, but drinking this side by side with the Cote du Py does bring to attention the differences in structure. At this stage, the Les Charmes has a slight edge over the Cote du Py for me due to it’s lacier texture and distinct mineral streak. The Cote du Py looks brutish even against this wine. A fascinating study of Beaujolais terrior. — 5 days ago

Beaujolais-Villages Gamay 2020

Bright Ruby color with aromas of fresh red fruits and hints of floral spice. On the palate flavors of cherry, raspberry and currants with notes of pepper spice, good acidity and balance. Medium finish, soft tannins, ending with a juicy fruit and floral character. Nice value, easy drinking. Drink now no aging benefit. — 5 days ago
