Gamay Noir

Domaine des Terres Dorées (Jean-Paul Brun)

Fleurie Gamay 2015

Light ruby colour evoking Pinot-noir.
Beautiful nose that pinote on raspberry and especially vegetable notes: anise, fennel, herbs, dried flowers etc. Delicate mouth with fine tannins, but nevertheless with beautiful chewing material, return of raspberry and pepper in the finish. The perfect Beaujolais bourguignon. I love it!

Robe rubis légère évoquant le Pinot-noir.
Magnifique nez qui pinote sur des notes framboise et surtout végétales: anis, fenouil, herbes, fleurs séchées etc. Bouche délicate aux tanins fins, mais néanmoins avec de la belle matière à mâcher, retour de la framboise et poivre en finale. Le parfait beaujolais bourguignon. J’adore!

Côte du Py Morgon Gamay 2019

2019 Cote du Py By far the best Gamay Noir I have tasted in several years. Such a precise expression of Morgon. This aroma shows the perfect combination of deep and inviting cherry plum fruitiness along with the slightest brush pepperiness and subtle meaty/earthy hints. There is no funky Brett in this wine that I can find. Not squeaky clean commercial either. There is no mistaking the pedigree of this vineyard site as well as the deft hand of this legendary producer. The texture is pure pleasure, almost nil tannins (The way I like it), and major length. Woody, brushy (rotundones) are combined with perfectly ripe tree fruit and alluring minerality . For anyone confused about the distinction between Burgundy and Beaujolais this should stand as a model example. Bravo bravo bravo!!! — a month ago

Côte du Py Vieilles Vignes Morgon Gamay 2009

Dark fruit, still fresh and balanced, not overripe like so many 2009s, mineral notes, drinking well but should still last, Burgaud really makes lovely wines!! — a day ago

easy, refreshing gamay & pinot noir blend. lol it was a whole journey and a half opening this bottle but that’s besides the points and bc of the wack keychain bottle opener . anyways, it was such a delicious, spring wine for the park. light, bright and dry - definitely some grapefruit, some cherry and some citrus notes — 2 days ago

Comtesse de Vazeilles Moulin-à-Vent Gamay 2015

N; like violet pastilles. Swampy funk, blows off, stones, interesting blue/black
with a touch of garrigue.
P:Lithe, somewhat saline upon entry,
trips over the tongue, such nice mouthfeel. Blackberries, slightly prickly tannins, this wine could go 10 more years. The panoply of flavors hints at tomato leaf, black fruits, with that ever present chewy tannin structure lurking.
Mind you, we PnP this one.
I could drink this …a…long ….time

Le Clos de Lys Morgon Gamay 2012

Berry jam, spice and rose petals on the nose, bit of something animal. On the palate the bright carbonic fruit still popping, with a beautiful floral and bitter stem finish that would accompany a lot of different food pairing options — 9 days ago

Cuvee Montessuy Gamay Noir

This wine is delicious. I could drink it every day and be happy. It’s listed as Gamay Noir on the front label and Beaujolais Villages on the back. I assume the back is accurate, as it’s a step up from your basic Beaujolais. I got this for $14 from Moore Brothers, which is an insane value considering that Cru Beaujolais routinely sells for twice as much these days. Whatever you do, don’t buy this so that it remains relatively cheap and there’s more for me. — 2 days ago

Les Impenitents Javernières Morgon Gamay 2020

But…there it was. It sang it’s siren song.
N: Big , beefy, dirty red beet, musky black cherries. Smoke and tar.
P: Black cherries, blood, iron, earth, dirt,
It’s said the Coté du Py Gamay vines are 100 years +. It shows. A knockout structured Beaujolais that’s always a fave. Delicious, if I was 40, I’d make plans to stash some away for 20 years.
A bit saved, day two, blacker and more tannic.
To quote Romain..” I love it.”!!!

Beaujolais Gamay 2020

Friend recco value Beaujolais. Perfectly pleasant but undistinctive. Very smoky nose; nice and fruity on the palate; a bit sparkly right when you open, no surprise given its youth. Probably worth aging a bit and trying again though that’s not going to happen. J likes — 7 days ago
