Imported by Kermit Lynch. This wine is 100% Gamay sourced from young vines located mostly in Morgon on granitic gravel soils. Alcohol 12%. The nose immediately revealed beautiful raspberry candy and floral aromas. There were similar flavors in the mouth with ripe hints but mainly leaned towards the tart. The light flavors were engaging and became drier towards the finish. *** Now.
