The structure that was front and center in early ‘19 is relaxed into its extraordinary silky mouth watering acids. The fruit is classic and dare I say profound for gamay.

Vicious attack of VA that falls away after 15 minutes. Unveiled, is fresh & punchy black & red berries. Major fruit depth boomerangs from tart to ripe, with balanced VA that lifts its secondary notes. Lovely Cote du Py indeed from 2011

Typical bojo raspberries, boysenberry, tomato-y iodine quality. There’s more structure here compared w/the rest of the gang.

Delicious albeit somewhat different year from Foillard. Lacked a little purity and freshness, but that doesn’t mean it was a subpar experience at all. Muddled, brambly fruit, spices, wilted flowers, animal and savory. Structured and with some rustic grip, which I liked.

Don’t want to be a hater but why, oh why, does Foillard always have to be bretty? VA. Muddled. A bit tired of the same old. Maybe my taste is evolving. Sample size tonight is two bottles from 2017.
