Just concluded our annual Fall seclusion into the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again.

This was a fully different bottle than the others (same vintage) enjoyed previously. Immense green vegetable/pepper notes for the first 24 hours, and then finally revealed some minor cherry traits. Not sure what was going on with this particular bottle, it was certainly off.

Imagine the brightest cherry note (nose) your can imagine, then multiply that by 3x and your getting closer to this bottle. Acidity so balanced with mineral notes, exceptional, best QPR in the business of Gamay! Decanted 4+ hours, right choice!

And then, there was this wine we opened after all the rest were done. What a stellar way to cap off just a wonderful night of great wine.

Classic, beautifully approachable, slight Brett, but definitely adds to the charm.

Var inte alls lika imponerad sist jag drack det här. Visserligen mörkare frukt och större koncentration än det man kanske letar efter i en bojo, men det håller på att gå ihop fint nu.

Черника, сухая малина, красное яблоко, земляничный джем, черри-кола, смола, хвоя, едва ощутимые говняшки, тонкая лакокраска, лакричная горчинка, фоновая минеральность. Легкое тело со стройной кислотностью и аккуратными, но ещё чуть суховатыми танинами. Довольно плотно и структурно, ещё очень молодо, с глубиной и фактурой, но без грациозной легкости. С потенциалом.

Such a nice wine. Better the second night. I'll try my best to leave the rest alone for 2 years.

Pungent and acidic first but incredibly smooth finish, be interested in how this taste in few years
