This is a superb oaked Gamay.

In general I love Gamay unoaked, and too many attempts at oaked gamay that are disappointing. But once I had encountered a good one, I was on the lookout for more. We currently have 3 from Beaujolais, and one from Switzerland - this one. It is the most ambitious, benefiting from the microclimate at the end of Lake Geneva. 3 weeks, sometimes 4, longer season than Beaujolais, and it shows.

Tasting Notes

A rich Gamay nose with plenty of cherry, mainly black but with red present also. The acidity is very apparent on first sipping but that energises the palate and the true balance of the wine becomes immediately apparant. The cherries continue in the mouth and the freshness is delightful.

I have been tasting this wine for nearly 10 years now, and some older vintages. It will have a subdued phase somewhere around 3 years, though it can happen later. Wait a year, it comes back brighter and more elegant
