Côte du Py Morgon Gamay 2016

Another excellent btl, a little more than a year since my last. On the nose, wild strawberry doused in sugar, cotton candy, lovely green stem notes bring this back down to earth, then nice earthy notes. On the palate, fantastic acidity, soft strawberry, herbal notes, dark cherry, some bark and earth notes, and attenuated tannin on the clean and slightly spicy finish. Yum. — 4 days ago

Domaine Migot

Vin de France Gamay 2019

Love this! Doesn’t smell like a carbonic style or cru Beaujolais, more barnyard, leather and earth. Very nice plum and red fruit explosion on the palate, plus balanced acidity/tannin — 3 days ago

Pink Bulles Rosé Gamay 2019

The ‘19 is this insane kir royal colour, super fizzy and fun. Little tiny bit sweeter than previous vintages, but still dry. Got three bottles and it feels criminal not to share this with more people, roll on unlockdown 🤪 — 8 days ago

La Cuvée du Chat Beaujolais-Villages Gamay

This bottle had a little spritz with worked well with the chalk and berry flavors. The two bottles I’ve had were both so different and both very good. — 9 days ago

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. 🇺🇲

Domaine Ruet

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... 🥳▶️ — 10 days ago

La Volcanique Côtes du Forez Gamay

One of those under the radar under 20$ wines that provides the ultimate satisfaction in wine. Like a feel good movie that you won’t tell your friends you watched. Not because it’s embarrassing but because you want to enjoy it all by yourself. And that’s fine with me. — 3 days ago

Château Thivin

Cuvée La Chapelle Côte de Brouilly Gamay 2014

Lyle Fass
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. — 10 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.
