Gamay for day and night


I can attest that the 2014 Damien Coquelet, Beaujolais-Villages is a lovely wine at a great price.  Not only did I drink my bottle last week, I drank from several bottles at a party hosted by Lou this weekend.  While this is not a wine of great depth or complexity, it is a wine of balance and completeness.  What is also great is that the 11% alcohol means you can knock back a glass at lunch without effect or drink glass after glass without fatigue.  Damien Coquelet is on fire with the 2014 vintage.  You should buy some!  This wine was purchased at MacArthur Beverages.

2014 Damien Coquelet, Beaujolais-Villages – $16
Imported by Louis/Dressner Selections.  Alcohol 11%.  There was a light nose of potpourri-scented red fruit.  The mouth continued with similar red fruit mixed with potpourri.  The fruit had ripeness with just the right amount of structure and a drier finish.  This lovely wine showed focus and watering acidity from the start.  It eventually took on black-pencil notes. *** Now-2019.
