Love and Squalor

Willamette Valley Gamay Noir 2016

Dense purple, highly extracted. Black currant, graphite and sulfite notes initially. Cherrystone, fruit punch and graphite flavors. Light but chewy seed tannins in finish with spice-black pepper aftertaste. After three hours, some raspberry flavor emerges. 110 cases made — 11 days ago

Oh lovely!🍷

François Chidaine

Touraine Grolleau Blend Rose

Fruity, floral, and mineral, this rosé has notes of strawberries, ruby red grapefruit, red apple peel, wilted peonies, dry earth, and flint. 🍓🍉 Med+ acidity and a smooth, round mouthfeel. I honestly love everything Chidaine does so I might be a bit biased. — 7 days ago

Cuvée Zaccharie Côte de Brouilly Gamay 2014

This wine is revelatory. I have not had a Beaujolais that has aged so well or taken on such a unique character. The intense, ripe, tangy Gamay fruit is there, but is both mellowed a bit and conversely is very intense. Also, of course, loads of crushed granite. In the mouth, it has more of a Bordeaux or Burgundy mouthfeel, not hard crunchy Beaujolais. Great acidity and length. Wonderful purity. — 9 days ago

Domaine du Moulin (Hervé Villemade)

Cheverny Pinot Noir Gamay 2017

Such a perfect summer red. Fragrant, light, gobs of tangy, ripe fruit. Very refreshing, with zingy acids and only 11.5% alcohol. Bone dry finish shows chalky, limestoney minerality at the end. — 6 days ago

Super complex and drinking great, with flavors that span the gamut from cranberry to Earl Grey tea, along with tons of spice and dried roses. Love the texture and length. A vibrant, constantly changing, bright and funky wine, full of life. Loved it. — 4 days ago

Beaujolais Gamay 2017

Popped, tasted, then back in the fridge it went, and by golly did it shine the next day! Notes mirrored the first time I had this - red fruits, floral, herbal, but now with heaps of briny elements. The brininess and acidity on the palate was so mouth-watering. Kept me going back for more and before I knew it, there was none left. Breaking my own rule for wine (i.e. meant to be shared) has never felt so good. Darn you, Metras!

My only issue with this bottle is that it felt a little more "natty" than the first, which could be a product of the extra air. If you look back at my previous notes, it's already got a pretty feral element, but this had a sort of "beany" savoury finish that I see a lot in natural wines. Still, it doesn't dominate.

NB: According to Wineanorak, this comes from a parcel in Fleurie that was taken out of the cru classification because it was too high up (500m). What?! 😅
