The nose is a riot of bright red summer fruits and white pepper, with hints of forest floor and citrus, all of which carry through on the palate - tangy, sweet-sour, with red cherry skin flavours providing the sour and fruits of the forest the sweet, with a real peppery/spicy bite, a modicum of dry, tea-like tannins, lovely citrusssy acidity and a dry, sour cherry finish that lingers long on the palate. Not hugely complex, but neither is it a simple quaffer. Rather, it is a beautiful, light red, which makes for a nice aperitif, but equally suited to food.

Although this is 100% Gamay, the resemblance to a minor Burgundy Pinot Noir is uncanny. I guess that has something to do with the traditional maceration (rather than carbonic) and the more northerly climate in which this is grown. Quite a deep colour, with a nose of raspberry and soused black cherry and hints of black pepper and undergrowth. The palate is superficially light and airy, with abundant red and black fruit flavours, plenty of tangy, cherry kernel acidity, just the right level of rustic tannic grip and a gentle peppery, stoney/mineral bite. It isn't a particularly serious wine, but it hit all the right notes when tasted on a pleasant late summer's evening - and was a great match for a barbecued steak and new potatoes with a tomato and green salad. A deliciously light, airy, food-friendly wine.
