Domaine des Billards (Barbet) Saint-Amour Gamay 2014

$17.99

Domaine des Billards is one of my absolute favorite Cru Beaujolais producers, and I put them in my top five estates in the region. These wines age magnificently and really are the Chambolles of Beaujolais when they are fully mature (perhaps this explains my affinity?) and can rival the top wines of Morgon and Moulin-à-Vent at their apogees... Domaine des Billards is a great glass of wine! The 2014 Billards is an outstanding example of the vintage, offering up a pure and youthful bouquet of black cherries, red plums, a touch of nutskin, violets, complex soil tones, woodsmoke and a bit of raw cocoa. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, tangy and tightly-knit still, with a lovely core, impeccable focus and balance... Great juice... (Drink between 2017-2035).

Really liked the elegance and purity, sift and light red fruits, very fine and filigree like structure.

Okay nose. Anonymous. Juicy and boring. A bit dirty. Okay. Not offensive. Good texture. But seems boring and one dimensional. Probably the fact it has to do with that St. Amour sucks.
