Alex Foillard Brouilly Gamay 2016

Thanksgiving week with my in-laws. Nose has wood smoke, crushed rocks, deep purple fruits are very generous, ripe blackberry and plum are prominent. Palate has nice depth, sweet blackberry, black cherry, smoked ripe plum, confectionery sugar, hints of mild oak with a medium-long finish. Perfect entry to the world. Debut commercial vintage from a son of one of the Masters of Beaujolais, at long last, Alex Foillard is bringing his wines to the world. Starting with an epic hail vintage, supply was quite limited for much of the North. Luckily Bouilly and Côte de Brouilly had minimal damage. For those in the know, 2016 Burgundy's will be wines for the ages.

Gamay made for meat. Well balanced with notes of cherries and the right notes to pair well with red meat.

とてもフルーティ、かつ果物がしっかり熟していて、丸みのあるボディ。赤いフルーツ、花などの華やかな香り。タンニンは中程度。美味しい
