YANNICK THONET "CHAUTAGNE GAMAY" 2013
Region: Savoie, France
Bottle Size: 750ml
Tasting note: This Gamay has notes of earth, cherry stalk, spice and red berries. A wine made to emphasise the freshness of its fruit, it tastes of black cherries with fine, savoury blackberry-skin tannins backing it up. It’s got a whole-bunch spiciness that makes one think of the Loire over to the west, but its purity and minerality combine to form a glacial coolness that’s unmistakably from the Alps.
