Blending Pinot Noir with Gamay – I may have to eat my hat!
I have been very dismissive of the blend of Gamay and Pinot Noir. However, the 2011 Cheverny Rosé from Laura Semeria's Domaine de Montcy may well force me to modify my opinion. The operative word here is modify not withdraw. Although Laura's 2011 Rosé is delicious with its red fruit and light grenadine character still delightfully fresh, my objections to a Pinot Noir/Gamay blend relate to red wines. I still can't remember any red Gamay/Pinot Noirs that have been convincing or memorable.
As a precaution I have consulted Google to asertain how a hat might be made palatable to eat and will be studying these ideas with keen attention.
