Another value hound’s delight from the southern reaches of the Lyon suburbs, this is a silky and juicy Gamay Noir no-brainer every day house wine, with great focus and length. If you’ve had it, you’re a fan. From Josh’s review, this promises to continue the hit parade……ahem ahem, value hounds…..
“Highly perfumed, mineral-tinged red fruit preserve and lavender aromas pick up a spicy nuance with air. Vibrant raspberry, cherry, floral pastille and spicecake flavors show fine definition and minerally back-end cut. Finishes impressively long and gently tannic, leaving a suggestion of candied flowers behind.” 90-91 Josh Raynolds
This 100% Gamay noir, 30 some year old vines on glacial deposits (large galets) over granite and sand with south eastern exposition, fermented and aged in tank. Juicy and freshy fresh!!
I have had dozens of people report back how impressed they are with this little wine, 100% Gamay Noir that drinks with wonderful poise and precision, as well as gourmandise. This is an exceptional every day bistro value….
