2017 Domaine de la Pirolette (750ml)

Gamay from Saint-Amour, Beaujolais, France


The 37-acre vineyard, one of the cru's largest, is on the hill of Saint-Amour, close to the village church. It has produced a juicy wine, full of strawberry flavors and ripe acidity. Perfumed and textured, this wine is developing, but needs some time. Drink from 2020.

Glistening ruby. Expressive red berry and floral pastille aromas are complemented by suggestions of baking spices and smoky minerals. Appealingly sweet and seamless in texture, offering juicy raspberry and cherry flavors that deepen slowly with air. Shows very good nerve and focus on the persistent, red fruit-dominated finish, which is given shape by supple, harmonious tannins.

Some quite ripe and darker fruit on offer here with a very plush and velvety tannin core that delivers a smooth, mellow and juicy palate. Drink now.
