Wines of the Beaujolais – Lot 2

Rouge | Gamay | 0,75 & 1,5 CL | Beaujolais

Granite soils - such as those of the Beaujolais, where it reigns supreme - are the preferred terroir of Gamay. Characterised by its freshness of fruit and its lively vinosity - too often pushed to the point of caricature, particularly in the Beaujolais "primeur" style - Gamay is magnified when vinified "à la beaujolaise" i.e., in whole bunches (carbonic or semi-carbonic maceration), which exalts the organoleptic singularity of the grape variety and softens its acidity and its natural tannins, whereas Burgundian vinification gives a more structured texture. Farmed and produced following natural methods, Gamays are at once deliciously drinkable and offer real depth.

Brouilly 2017 Alex Foillard⎪Red⎪Gamay⎪0,75 L⎪Brouilly⎪Beaujolais

A true Beaujolais Cru gamay, with its precise fruit, juicy, fleshy but fresh, coated and balanced, and with the mineral imprint specific to the granitic part of the terroir that surrounds Brouilly.

VDF Noir de Creuse Noire 2011 Jérôme Guichard⎪Red⎪Gamay⎪0,75 L⎪Vin de France⎪Beaujolais

From old Gamay vines on the granite terroir of the Creuse Noire lieu-dit in the village of Leynes: a beautifully balanced wine of frank character, perfectly balanced after a decade of cellaring.

VDF Allez les verres !!! 2013 Philippe Jambon (Magnum)⎪Red⎪Gamay⎪1,5 L⎪Vin de France⎪Beaujolais

Old Gamay vines and low yields deliver a red that is both concentrated and supple, a combination of fruit, with a spicy note (liquorice), and depth: a wine that perfectly illustrates the philosophy of Philippe Jambon.
