Tasting notes


From a Domaine founded in 1888, this is a deliciously expressive Gamay, packed with ripe, concentrated, succulent cherry and forest fruit perfume. In the mouth it's similarly lithe and sleek, with mouthwatering acidity, elegantly pure fruit, fantastic purity and a long but light finish. (16.5 points)
