Domaine des Gaudets, Côte du Py Morgon 2015, Beaujolais, France
Tasting Note: A serious Beaujolais for gamay lovers who appreciate concentration and depth.
Deep-intensity purple in color, this wine has a nose of red cherry, red plum, raspberry and apple blossom.
On the palate the dry, full-bodied Beaujolais delivers restrained fruit flavors suggested on the nose with a black-fruit tilt.
The wine displays concentration and mid-palate complexity along with hints of chalk on the medium-plus finish.
There is velvety, medium-plus tannin and balance between the fruit and medium-plus acidity.
A grown-up gamay!
Bottle Note: 100% Gamay. Earl Christophe Sornay.
