El Dorado Gamay Noir 2013

Marc Stubblefield

Perfectly evolved, silky smooth, granite driven, California sunshine Gamay. There's nothing over-ripe here, but there's no denying this is from Cali, not Morgon. The complete package, and better for a few years in the cellar. — 5 days ago

Côte du Py Morgon Gamay

Superb nose of cherry and earth and blood. Very intense! The palate is superb too with an exquisite balance between a delicious cherry juice and a long acid backbone. Slight tannins kick in in the end to mark a long finish with fruits and cherry moonlight notes. Once again foillard delivers big time in a more subtle, precise way than 14 and 15. My favourite Beaujolais producer — 7 hours ago

St. Amour Gamay Noir 2015

What an absolutely wonderful surprise to try this deliciously floral, woody and dare I say slightly sweet Beaujolais Saint-Amour. Since my wine journey began, I slowly felt as though I was approaching a ceiling of flavour somehow; this incredible wine has opened the door to many possibilities to come. — 11 days ago

Jolie-Laide Wines

Barsotti Vineyard Gamay Noir

Light wine! Light in color, light in ABV (11.5!), light in flavors (in a good way). Red berry, chery, a hint of dirt, wild flowers. Save it for the summer - heck, chill it a bit even! OK, I love the stuff they are doing at Jolie Laide - not afraid to make a wine with this low an ABV. And love the labels, of course. 9.2 — 14 days ago

La Souteronne Vin de Pays de l'Ardèche Gamay 2016

Marc Stubblefield

Definitely its own animal. Has a ton of tannic/mineral structure but also lots of fresh, light, tart fruit. Nails that iris-y floral/vegetal Gamay thing, while still leaning towards olive/meatiness. And it all works. This may evolve, but my instincts are that this is a vintage for right now, when it's full of electric energy and all the parts are vibrating and tense and begging for your attention. — 5 days ago

Côte de Brouilly Gamay 2015

Superb fruit either on the nose or on the palate. The wine needs air, at least one hour to be more precise, integrated and balanced. Cherry and smoke on the nose. Cherry and nice acids on the palate. Fruity finish. A Beaujolais that delivers — 16 hours ago

Domaine Lafarge Vial

Chiroubles Gamay 2014

Nose has very funky, tangy, deep berries, along with very nice granite minerality. Round in the mouth, with lots of tangy fruit on entry, but transitioning quickly to very clingy stony mineral notes that fade only slowly. Very soft and nicely balanced. — 8 days ago

Domaine Lucien Lardy

Cote Du Py Morgon Gamay 2015

Testing on a gazillion other grapes but fuck. Why the not cru Beaujolais. This is like someone who is not sure if they are blackberry or cherry but is berry undecided and goes to the dance with you. You are reluctant (still undeclared) acid. Y’all have a beautiful night.It’s a beautiful night time wine full of blackberries, blueberries, cherries, vanilla beans and conundrums. — 6 days ago

Cuvée Jules Chauvet Beaujolais-Villages Gamay 2015

At first I was expecting more. But at the end of the bottle all I wanted was more... more more more. Let it open and it's like drinking leprechaun velvet. Happy Saint Patrick's Day. — 17 hours ago
