Fruit is somewhat lost in the Brett. Maybe not the best bottle

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.

Oregano, dencorub nose. Pizza shop body. Tingly marinara acid.

Juicy blue and black fruits, cherry pit, smoke and spice. Very different flavor profile than Beaujolais

Pronounced, funky ass aromas of rubber and animal and mud, with the bright gamay fruit lurking under it. The fruit takes over on the palate—tart, bright raspberries and cherries, with the barnyard notes coming on the finish. High acid, mire tannin than I think of for gamay, long finish, intensely flavored. This is yet another neat wine from an always interesting winemaker

Crazy boisterous for a Gamay. A little barnyard, pepper, game, stewed red fruit. Reductive? Needs some air, not for the faint of heart. This is not your std floral Gamay.
