CdesC's gamay based on Paul Bosc's clone certainly is a straight shooter. Pretty aromatics and rich ripe flavours of cherry, red berry, florals and spice. A sense of sweetness but there's good balancing acidity, little in tannic grip and decent overall length. This can age a bit, but really no reason to when it's so enjoyable now. April 2017.

Interestingly, I enjoyed this wine more on day two. Very juicy and delicious. Nice finish, a bit dusty, and light to medium weight.
