Nova Fleurie Gamay 2019

Domaine Bertrand - nova - fleurie 2019

This is a fleurie without any added SO2 and in a vineyard that is in its 3 years of transitionning into being organic. This is the last of the 4 wines I brought back from the bertrand vineyard (as in the last one I taste again as I brought a case of each) . Again please pay them a visit if you can, they are great hosts with great wines.
This is probably my favorite wine in their line up.
The nose is great with cherry, a bit of cherry liqueur too, hay and an earthy thing too. The palate is extremely well balanced with a great matter, a bright cherry fruit, a soft and easy mouthfeel, a great mid palate with a spherical form, some gentle tannins caressing the tongue and adding some complexity. The finish is just plain fruit for ever. This is one great beaujo experience!

Domaine Piron-Lameloise

Quartz Chénas Gamay 2016

Charming, floral, vegetal nose. Fruity and tense mouth, with beautiful floral notes (peony) and a beautiful almost saline mineral line that leads to the tasting. It's a very nice balance between greed and refinement, with superb drinkability. Gamay as I like it💕

Nez charmeur, floral, végétal. Bouche fruitée et tendue, avec toujours de belles notes fleuries (pivoine) et une belle ligne minérale presque saline qui conduit la dégustation. C’est un très belle équilibre entre gourmandise et raffinement, avec une superbe buvabilité.Le Gamay comme j’aime 💕

Beaumont Mâcon-Pierreclos Gamay 2016

A gamay which, blindly, could pass as one of Burgundy. The characteristic aging will appeal to lovers of the genre. The primary notes are a little out of the way. The other cuvées of this domaine enchanted me on the balance between the two. It's a little disappointment. It's still well done.

Un gamay qui, à l’aveugle pourrait passer pour un vin de Bourgogne. L’élevage caractéristique plaira aux amateurs du genre. Les notes primaires sont un peu en retrait. Les autres cuvées du domaine m’avaient enchanté sur l’équilibre entre les deux. Petite deception. Ça reste bien fait.

Côte du Py Morgon Gamay 2011

This bottle was a lovely gift from our friend Tim who visited Omaha this past Spring. Our only instructions were to enjoy it together with food; challenge accepted! While I have experienced many wines produced by Foillard, this was my first with his “Cote du Py”. The wine pours a deep ruby color; slightly hazy in the glass. On the nose, at least initially, there are signs of some Brett giving a barnyard characteristic but that sort of blows off (or at least becomes less obvious) with cherries, earth, blackened poblano, underripe plum, and purple Sweet Tarts taking a more central role. On the palate, it’s mostly dark cherry and blackberries showing very little in the way of evolution. Medium+ acid, medium- tannin. The finish was super long. I was really impressed how young this wine was coming across; hardly an indication of anything that would indicate ten years of age. Yet more proof that Beaujolais can cellar quite gracefully. We loved how this paired with grilled rack of lamb and a light salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, garbanzo beans, mozzarella and prosciutto. Grazie Tim! — 10 days ago

Cote de Brouilly Gamay 2018

Top tier gamay. Elegant, silky texture, medium plus acidity. I give this the edge over the Brouilly bottling from ‘18. Earthy tones in the background, packed with ripe cherry and raspberry notes. Picked up weight and depth with air. Smooth finish. — 6 days ago

Eponym' Les Charmes Morgon Gamay 2017

Very good. Licorice, star anise, violet, dark purple fruit. Ripe gamay character - a bit riper with less acid than I prefer - still very transparent. — 4 days ago
