Burgundy Gamay

Château de Grand Pré

Fleurie Gamay 2015

Is #FleurieFriday a thing? If not, perhaps it should be. This particular bottle is made for easy sipping. Round fruit and not very complex. It’s a perfect way to wipe off the week’s stress before jumping into the weekend. — 7 days ago

Les Thorins Moulin-à-Vent Gamay 2015

Nose is meaty, with dark tangy berry fruit and lots of dry, stony- gravelly scents. Structured and tight in the mouth. Lots of tannin and acids. Needs a couple of years. But it was darn good with the mesquite-grilled skirt steak fajitas I made! — 5 days ago

Bourgogne Cuvee Vielles Vignes 2016

This is my first experience with Bruilly. A wonderful Gamay with raspberry, oak and vanilla. It is surprisingly well developed for a 2016 vintage. It’s medium bodied and paired well with the steak-frite in Paris we paired it with. I’m not sure on how ageable these wines are. But at only 12.5% alcohol it seems like it could be put up and become something truly great. — a day ago

Phénix Fleurie Gamay 2016

Fantastic high toned cherry and gooseberry fruit, super pure, rich floral aromatics, herbs, ripe tannins, and subtle minerality. My first exposure to this producer and I’ll definitely be back! — 7 days ago

Château Thivin

Cuvée Zaccharie Côte de Brouilly Gamay 2015

This bears little resemblance to a Gamay from Beaujolais, starting with the startlingly saturated violet color. The nose is feral, with inky dark berries, laced with venison jerky, poured on to a slab of just-cracked granite. In the mouth, massive dry extract and intensity, but simultaneously vibrant. It’s got soft tannin and acids to spare, so it will age, but really special now. This is actually a fall-weight Bojo. The only thing about this wine that runs according to type is the blocky ‘15 tactile feel, which is not my fave. — 12 days ago

I was too late to the game to grab the '15, but '16 now in the cellar for a pending cork pull.

@Tom Casagrande this needs 10+ years as it’s non classic

Have never had their cuvée, but everything else has been great imho

Vieilles Vignes Morgon Gamay 2016

Feminine red and black fruits with stemmy green notes and perfumed flowers and herbs. Concentrated berry flavors on the palette. Extremely well made - fresh nuanced gamay without any bubble gum banana (which I also do enjoy). This is a seriously well made Burgundian style wine. — 10 days ago

Morgon Gamay 2016

Initial nose of subtle rosy barn. Clean and bright fruit on the palate. And the subtle brett returns for the finish. Fruit Bookended by subtle brett... just the way I like it! — 15 days ago

Domaine Chignard

Beauvernay Juliénas Gamay 2016

Beautiful Cru Beaujolais. Wet stone, faint smoke and deep red fruits on the nose with a whiff of freshly picked red roses. The palette confirmed red fruits and minerality, but with a ripe plum/plum skin tartness. Fine grained tannins and medium acidity. A relatively complex and easy drinking wine that paired well with a roasted Spring leg of lamb. — 8 days ago
