Natural Trio

February 8, 2010

2009 is going to be insane in Beaujolais. This wine was a revelation of purity and honesty. This Nouveau is as serious a Gamay as I’ve had, Cru, Loire, or otherwise. Just beautiful.

Floral and slate. It reminded me of Pinon’s Vouvrays in approach and Sec-tendre style, but was distinctly Riesling. Quenching.

Funked with a little blacktop and earth, but tremendous acidity and cool a blip of sweetness on the finish. Ironically perfect with pork bbq.
