In the beginning, touch of wet dirt, minerality, bramble on the nose that quickly evolved to wild strawberries, banana, raspberries, iron. Strawberry coulis, ripe cherries, floral mouth with lots of acid, well balanced alcohol (13%), and low tannins making this the most gulpable, delicious, fresh, elegant, and inspiring wine in a while. Thank you!!! @Rajat Parr @Cured - Will And Coral Frischkorn

Hands down the best Gamay I have ever tasted from outside Beaujolais. Reasonably priced, great packaging and is a 10/10 on the chug-ablility scale. It expresses the spicy side of Gamay which confirms Parr's theory on the decomposing granite and volcanic clay-loam soil that this and Brouilly both grow in. Good edge and extortion here, so don't worry about the carbonic maceration.

Doesn't have the clarity or lithe quality of a good Brouilly or Chenas, but more of the richer yet balanced style of a Morgon or Moulin-a-Vent. Really liked it a lot. Had wanted to try this wine for some time and was only slightly underwhelmed.

A red laser. Woulda guessed a stemmy Pinot, as this does not have the carbonic signature of Bojo Gamay. Really delicious, but cutting, which I guess maybe I should describe as crunchy. I really like this and would like to have another go once it has some age on it.
