Gamay 15, Domaine de Fa Beaujolais en Besset 2014 - from Graillot

domaine de fa graillot

A couple of years ago, northern Rhone producer Graillot bought a couple of parcels of vines in Saint Amour, Beaujolais. They made their first wines in 2014, including this wine. They then bought 3 hectares in Fleurie, and the first vintage from these vines is the 2015. It’s so interesting to see all this interest in Beaujolais and the Gamay grape. And this, the first wine they’ve released, is really good – and spectacular value, too.

Sweetly aromatic with red cherries, plums and some spiciness. The palate is fresh with juicy red cherry cherry fruits and lovely supple structure, It’s quite fresh and mineral with a lovely bright core. Sappy, spicy and quite peppery on the finish. 92/100 (£12.50 Yapp)
