This is one of my favorite producers of Gamay. I paired this with a thick cut pork chop using the Mustard's Restaurant recipe in Napa. They've sold over a million of them because their just that good. I marinated them for 48 hours...so much more flavorful when you do. There's a lot of ingredients in the recipe and you could go a lot of ways pairing wine. The ingredients are; Hoisin sauce, sugar, Tamari soy sauce, sherry wine vinegar, rice vinegar, onion scallion, Tabasco sauce, Lee Kum Kee chili sauce, fresh ginger, white pepper, cilantro and sesame oil. You could do; dry Riesling, dry Austrian wine, aged Syrah, dark heavy Pinot, certain producers of Chateauneuf du Pape, this Gamay and few others. However, this worked extremely well. Great pair!

A touch funky/poopy on this bottle. Good stony undertone.

Fantastic lunch wine on a cold monday this "spring" in Boulder. Such energy, verge, and complexity... Only wish we had more!

My first time with the Fleurie, man was it singing. Macerated red fruits with gentian and camphor notes, more than a touch of Brett (but not overwhelming). It's hard to beat Cote du Py Morgon as one of my favorite wine, but I may like this even a touch better.

Beautiful and seamless, with depth and power that belie its barely medium weight frame. Yes, there's a price premium for Foillard these days, but you get what you pay for. Super.

Bubble gum, dry red roses and a little spice on the nose. Dark raspberries, dark cherries, raspberries, some strawberries, bubble gum, bandaid, violets & red roses, granite, soft spice and rich sweet dark soil. There's nice evolution in the bottle as its so soft, smooth and elegant. Jean Foillard, Marcel La Pierre and Yvon Metras are my favorite producers for Gamay.

Rise Over Run

Got a problem? No need to settle for a temporary fix when you could find a perm solution. Isn't it interesting how "natural wine" can smell so synthetic? As an 80's kid, I find it nostalgic.
