2015 Chignin Gamay

A. & M. Quenard

2015 Chignin Gamay A. & M. Quenard - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

   $18.95

Gamay has found a home away from home in the vineyards of Savoie, high on a mountain in the hands of the Quenard family. The chilly Alpine climate and rocky limestone soil of Chignin allow for a unique expression of the grape: lean, juicy, and explosively aromatic, with a salivating minerality that keeps you coming back for more. Unassuming enough to be uncorked for the most trivial of reasons, it radiates a vivid fragrance of smashed raspberries, then briskly and crunchily greets the palate before finishing on a note of powdered stone. Drink it frequently, slightly cool, and with gusto. –Anthony Lynch
