Beaujolais, Burgundy

Alex Foillard

Beaujolais Villages Gamay 2018

Nose has cut strawberry, ripe raspberry, dry chalk, baking spice and light alcohol.

Palate has ripe cherry, fresh raspberry, dried black cherry and dried cranberry sprinkled with allspice.

Decanted ~2.5h, a young wine that would appreciate a few more years in the bottle. Tonight it paired successfully with homemade burgers from a local farmer in Columbia Co. NY (Kinderhook Farm).

Happy Memorial Day to all, especially those who have come before me to protect the freedom we enjoy in the USA, Thank you. 🇺🇲

Régnié Gamay 2018

Notes on the nose of dark raspberry, grape candy, black cherry, a touch of spice and flowers. There’s also an earthy meatiness which starts off stronger, but then quiets down and melts into the background. On the palate blackberry compote with black licorice, singed blackberry bramble, and dark flowers, a smattering of red berries and few sprigs of herbs to the mix. The fruit had a nice balance being just at the midpoint of being tart and ripe.

Paired with focaccia and cheese plate.

La Fontenelle Chiroubles Gamay 2017

Sneak attack of intense flavored fresh fruit—cherry, raspberry, blueberry—after a sorta closed aroma. Smooth and rich, but sharp, lively acid. Nice companion at the grill... 🥳▶️ — 5 days ago
