Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) Bright purple. Pungent aromas of redcurrant, black raspberry, dried rose and minerals, with a smoky overtone. Juicy, incisive red fruit flavors show a refreshingly bitter edge and gain sweetness with air. Fine-grained and admirably balanced, finishing with noteworthy clarity and lingering spiciness.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) This is a very serious Gamay! It's accessible, yet complex, with lots of red fruit (raspberries, redcurrants), graphite, savory licorice/toasted anise, cocoa, and some dried mint. Soft tannins (plush, not intrusive at all), and good acidity. Pairs great with grilled sausages, and barbecued chicken breast!
