Gamay 32, François Rousset-Martin J'en Suis Gaga 2015

francois rousset martin

I had this wine on Wednesday night at the fab Westerns Laundry. It’s a Gamay from the Jura, but is labelled as Vin de France. François Rousset-Martin grew up in Burgundy where his father was a medical microbiologist at the Hospices de Beaune. But the family had some vines in the Jura: 12 hectares in Nevy-Sur-Seille, with half of these holdings in the Château Chalon appellation. After studying enology, in 2007 he took over the family vines, and now makes wine from 3.5 hectares while selling the rest to the local co-op. Farming is organic. UK agent is Les Caves de Pyrene; US agent is Kermit Lynch.

13% alcohol. There’s a lovely richness to the nose with some delicacy, too. Juicy and detailed with some wild strawberry, red cherry and brisk cranberry fruit, as well as hints of dried herbs and mulch. Lovely structure under the fruit. This is superb. 94/100
