Dominique Piron Beaujolais Villages 2016 Gamay

Have you tried a wine made from the Gamay grape before? It’s Pinot Noir’s cousin and it grows primarily in a region in France called Beaujolais (next to the wine region of Burgundy).

Dominique Piron Beaujolais Villages 2016 GamayThis Gamay #sample from The Wine Gallery is produced by the Dominique Piron estate which has ancestry dating back to the early 16th century??

My tasting note: It’s a plum juice red colour in the glass. The nose is initially rather farmy and savoury with hints of red liquorice and sweet oak spice following. In the mouth, it’s like a delicious mouthful of juicy raspberries and wild strawberries with an extra smooth mouthfeel. Yum!

Food Match: Steak frites with Roquefort

All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy! #tcweekdaywine
