Burgundy Gamay

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. 🇺🇲

Beaujolais Villages Rosé Gamay 2018

This begins with tense acid & lighter red berries It opens into a mouth coating, riper strawberry & pomegranate delight. Gamay Rose should be more of a thing. Perfect with braised chicken. — 5 days ago

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... 🥳▶️ — 2 days ago

Cuvee MMXVIII Villié-Morgon Gamay 2018

Tangy and vivid dark fruit with fresh raspberry, and bright strawberry and almost grapefruit on the nose. On the palate young and vibrant. Lots of zest and punch to the fruit. Quite dynamic and punchy. — 11 days ago

Cuvée La Chapelle Côte de Brouilly Gamay 2014

9.4

My favorite vintage of La Chapelle. Deep nose of forest floor, cranberry, floral notes, mineral, crushed rocks and specifically granite, very very aromatic. Like wow. Palate is bright and energetic, with terrific fruit, sap and intensity. What vivid fruit. Special wine. What a core of fruit and terrific juicy structure. Elegant tannins and terrific length. Sweet cherry fruit and so many rocks and minerals at the finish. Lingering and pure. Knockout. Has decades to go but a great bottle. — 2 days ago

Domaine Chamonard

Le Clos de Lys Morgon Gamay 2017

Fruit is very ripe and grapey with a faint perception of sweetness, some anise and spices and bubble gum.

Ripeness and carbonic quality more than terroir at this point. Nice, but not at the top of my list for this price point.

Gamay "natural" with reduced intake of sulphite, unfiltered etc. Round and fresh, very tasty with a nice concentration, almost infused. Long and rich finish, slightly too acidity for a 9 — 11 days ago

Vieilles Vignes Morgon Gamay 2016

Delicious and elegant. Nose has wafty, gorgeous candied cherry fruit, granitic minerality, and a background note of barnyard funk to remind you this is not industrial Bojo. In the mouth it’s intensely flavorful but has a light feel and a silky texture. Beautifully pure fruit. Very nice, crisp acids. — 16 days ago
