2009 Gamay Clos Roche Blanche

2009 Gamay Clos Roche Blanche

Catherine Roussel did say that this Gamay would be showing at its best next year but we could not resist opening a bottle last night. It went perfectly with baked dorade (sea bream) with a prawn and orange butter. I was going to write detailed tasting notes but the wine disappeared too quickly for that. Suffice to say that it has lovely fresh ripe fruit, with some structure and good freshness in the finish. Certainly can be drunk with pleasure now, especially with food and has the potential to age – if you let it!
