Vinoque Gamay 2012

The 2011 version of this wine was a classic case of the maxim: "judge the wine, not the vintage". 

This version carries its own calling card from 2012, along with the winemaking techniques employed - stemmy and sappy with a hint of mushroom and earth, along with slightly higher-toned fruit character than the earlier release. 

Shows good depth on the palate, slightly sullen, with a hint of mineral and cured meat. More of the same on the finish, accompanied by a slight hint of pastille – some spritz evident. Touch of peppery spice to conclude. 90 – Good 

Tasted on: Saturday 2nd February, a Root Day
