Gamay sucks

I like wine- ok I like genuine simple unadulterated wine- less pumping & technology for me the better ( I have even had a recent release from Sami-Odi from Barossa and thought it was good)…
I have been buying bits and pieces from the same cave for a week and with time wines emerge

Jean louis Dutraive Cuvee Vielles Vignes terrior champagne Domaine de la Grand’Cour Fleurie 2010

Unfiltered subtle roast nuts like a great chateau neuf but the mouth is fruit tannin intermingled with earthy beetrooty genuine fruit & fruit tannins coat the mouth, the wine grows in the glass- find it,try it and smile- my caviste told me gamay is the next great thing and I shuddered as that is a shame as it is not the style of a next great wine – it is a wine of life and pleasure the absence of monetry & collector advantage.

    It better be the next big thing — I’ll probably import 1500 cases of it this year 🙂
