Burgundy Gamay

Morgon Gamay 2017

Hay, leather, cherry, earth, a bit of a cola and candy cane too. Boy what a ride! The palate is perfectly drawn : superb acid backbone, extremely ripe cherry all along, some width, some weight, a bit of tannins this time (oh complexity), some grip and a bit of salt and meat along with a radiant cherry in a very long finish. As always this is grand 🍷 — 5 days ago

From the Windy City wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. Beaujolais number 3 and it’s the best of the 3 I have tried this week. Really ripe cherries and chocolate — 13 days ago

Origine Vieilles Vignes Beaujolais 2019

Delectable Wine
9.0

This delicious Beaujolais-Nouveau (from vines that are up to 85 years old) brims with intense dark berry, floral and spice notes. Mineral overtones add urgency and back end cut to round things out in style. $18.00 (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, December 2019) — 2 days ago

Clos de la Roilette Fleurie Gamay 2018

Effusive and beguiling black fruit... ripe plums, cassis, bramble fruit, jam and charcoal. Silky, full bodied bojo with a hint of licorice on the palate. Maybe the best quality/price ratio wine I know? Coudert is the best. Missing a touch of acidity but 2018 seems like a great vintage nonetheless. — 12 days ago

"Grand Pré" Fleurie Gamay 2015

A nice Beaujolais from a vintage that I don’t usually love compared to 2014/2016. Definitely better with an hour or so in a decanter to let the tannins integrate a bit more. Dark purple in the glass - darker than expected. Nice cherry aromas. Still could resolve a bit more on the finish but with a slight chill is nice. — 14 days ago

Totally agree on the vintages. 14s were killer. 15s just too much heat

Decompression Beaujolais #6 after a long day of driving. Raspberries and earthy. A little sharper than the others I have tried this week but still enjoyable. — 10 days ago

Brouilly Gamay 2016

Thanksgiving week with my in-laws.

Nose has wood smoke, crushed rocks, deep purple fruits are very generous, ripe blackberry and plum are prominent.

Palate has nice depth, sweet blackberry, black cherry, smoked ripe plum, confectionery sugar, hints of mild oak with a medium-long finish. Perfect entry to the world.

Debut commercial vintage from a son of one of the Masters of Beaujolais, at long last, Alex Foillard is bringing his wines to the world. Starting with an epic hail vintage, supply was quite limited for much of the North. Luckily Bouilly and Côte de Brouilly had minimal damage. For those in the know, 2016 Burgundy's will be wines for the ages.

Yes, but he had a great mentor, so one could expect a debut at this level. I also opened the Côte also this evening, I like the valley fruit better than the mountain by a smidge.

Red Beaujolais Nouveau 2019

I saw where someone else described this years’ Nouveau as “bitter and tart” so I was worried because I really enjoy this wine with my Thanksgiving meal. I found it to be as expected; fruity and smooth. Thank goodness we all have different palates! Happy Thanksgiving to all my Delectable friends!! 🍷🍂🍽🦃 — 13 days ago
