Cuvée La Chapelle Côte de Brouilly Gamay 2018

A great La Chapelle. Blueberry, smoke, spice, dark cherries, loads of earth and mineral. Spicey granite. Lovely floral top note as well. Palate is ripe and so so juicy, incredible freshness and purity and shockingly mineral. The fruit is in background. Has a red Riesling quality to it this year. Fruit is more fruit skin than flesh. Cherry, blueberry, cassis and super concentrated but so nimble. Absolutely delicious. Long mineral finish with floral and fruit sneaking in as it airs. Great stuff. — 11 days ago

Domaine des Terres Dorées (Jean-Paul Brun)

Côte de Brouilly Gamay 2017

Bright medium ruby. Needs a bit of air to open up then yields a cascade of fruit- raspberry, kirsch and cherry, violets, earthy undertones and a bit of candied fruit without a hint of seemed. Very focused acidity and silky, well defined tannins. Long finish- lots of depth here — 2 days ago

Domaine de la Voûte des Crozes Côte-de-Brouilly Gamay 2018

This was very nice paired with chicken and veggies, when the flavors seemed to erupt a little more and complement the food. A decent red, nothing too speculator though. — 10 days ago

Château Thivin

Cuvée Zaccharie Côte de Brouilly Gamay 2015

Really good for a ’15 Bojo. Massively extracted, but tannins completely under control. Nose has smoky crushed granite and dark, oozy, tangy berries. The barest hint of Brett adds complexity. Tangy, athletic, and mouthfilling. Can’t help but smack your lips. Great concentration. So unique. Still youthful. Years to go. — 17 days ago

Domaine du Pavillon de Chavannes

Cuvée des Ambassades Côte de Brouilly Gamay 2017

Well balanced and light to medium body with some tannins to counter bright acidity. I get cedar, warm cooking spices, and roasted pepper, fresh (not canned/sauced) cranberry. Taste lingers some, nicely. — 17 days ago
