Régnié Gamay 2019

Beautiful, very pale ruby appearance - although almost pink like stewed rhubarb. Pronounced on the nose, and then an array of varying red fruits, cranberry, strawberry, red currant. High acidity across the tongue, soft tannins and med high alcohol really make this wine a treat. Partial carbonic maceration really adds to the character of this wine by the master Guy Breton. Highly recommend 👍 — 9 days ago

Côte de Brouilly Gamay 2016

Raspberry is maybe the least interesting note - about as exciting as yellow birthday cake. This is good raspberry flavored wine, but raspberries can't ever be what, strawberry, cherry, violets, leather, coffee, cedar, vanilla can be. Apparently the raspberry situation ran rampant in Beaujolais in 2016.

This, in spite of the environment, is well constructed with the right levels of ripeness in good balance. Has some interesting stemmy flavors and a plush silky texture, salinity on the back.

If all we had in Beaujolais in 2016 is raspberries, Breton made raspberry-ade. The best with what he had.

@Ely Cohn I’m with you. Raspberry is my least favorite berry, hands down.

@Adam Beasley totally. Most boring note in wine.

Orthogneiss Muscadet de Sèvre-et-Maine Melon de Bourgogne 2011

So singular..., complex and intriguing.
Lemon oil, oystershells, seafoam, mossy rocks, iodine and peat (!).
How often do you sample an aged Muscadet..?
Neverending education...!

Vieilles Vignes Morgon Gamay 2013

Someone left a glass of cranberry juice in the horse stable for a few days. Somehow still alive and kicking. Not pinoted. Just juicey juice.

Actually not bad especially on day two. Like underripe tart cherry juice.

Excellent! Very young so no rush to drink. Opened 30 minutes prior to drinking. Evolving dark.fruit aromas. Grilled Meat, dark fruit, and earthy notes. Well balanced. Definitely recommend. — a month ago

P'tit Max Morgon Gamay 2018

Limpid ruby, just beautiful to look at. Nose is characterized by high toned florals that are only a whisper now, even after a day open, but I suspect will develop with time. On the palate, fruit that is at once flamboyant and delicate. Purple and red fruit shape shift through expressions of red currant, purple raspberry, cranberry, tart cherry and red apple candy. This is deepened with a turn to the medicinal— cherry ludens, maybe a dash of peychauds— as well as the mineral. Silken texture with real depth despite so little extraction, tannins, or even too much acid. Subtlety reigns supreme; with herbal, mineral and textural nuances providing balance. This is a really fascinating wine. I’d say in 2-3 years it will be singing, after that I’m not sure how it will develop. — 23 days ago

Pale gold colour with a nose of lovely white florals, lemon zest and stone fruit. The palate is bright with flavours of stone fruit, honey, citrus and herbs. Delicious and pairs well with chicken. — 24 days ago
