Burgundy Gamay

Domaine De La Grand'Cour (Jean-Louis Dutraive)

Fleurie Gamay 2016

Dutraive is a master of Gamay and one of my favorite producers, period. His wines show the extent to what the grape can do. His is elegant, complex, pure, terroir driven. This 2016 Fleurie has green herbal aromas with iodine, stringent red rose buds, and tart wild berries. When I describe pure mineral driven wines, this is quintessentially what I envision. You can taste the rocky earth and Dutraive weaves that core into well behaved fruit and floral flavors with another dose of iodine on the finish. It’s a spectacularly fresh wine at a fraction of the cost to what you’d pay in Burgundy. Bravo. — 7 days ago

Sex Appeal Fleurie Gamay 2015

Лакокраска, черемуха, конфитюр из темной сливы, пепел, сушеная черника, чернослив, пионы, пыльца. Нос обманом уводит в концентрированные интернациональные вина, вкус приятно удивляет лёгкостью и определенной стройностью. Not your typical Gamay. — 8 days ago

Clepsydre Fleurie Gamay 2016

Gorgeous bottle to spend a Saturday night with. Deep yet refined with pretty fruit that got a bit more forward with time in the glass. A well-made burger pairing brought out its spicy side. — 8 days ago

Côte du Py Morgon Gamay 2015

Beautiful color. Nose of black cherry, cassis, nutmeg, bit of forest floor. On the pallet it has strong tannins and quite a bit of acid. You can really taste the youth. You can also taste the chalky earth and tart red cherry. It definitely needs more time, but quite tasty. Young, it needs food like lamb. — 5 days ago

Gamay! Not used to it and was initially taken aback by the forward nature of this rose’ bubbly. But it’s approachable and delicious w ample fruit at front and medium sized bubbles. — 3 days ago

Cuvée Vieilles Vignes Moulin-à-Vent Gamay 2017

Glorious fruit, robust tannins, fresh acidity. Spicy, bright, intense, smoky, mineral. Everything Moulin-à-Vent should be. Youthful exuberance comes off as a bit raw, but give it time and it will be sublime. It’s hard not to get excited about cru Beaujolais at with kind of price-quality factor. — 14 days ago
