No joke: 'Les Bruyères' was awarded best in show at Concours International de Lyon. While "Best Gamay In The World" seems a touch hyperbolic (I think a few guys named Thevenet, Foillard, Breton, and Lapierre might have something to say about that), but this is an undeniable joy. Sourced from 60+ y/o vines, this is ready to drink now in its youth (unlike those much pricier, more tightly wound bottlings from the aforementioned gang of four). Lush black cherry and raspberry, anise, and white pepper pop on the palate, granting Bojo-lovers with an immediate rush of serotonin that only Gamay can provide. I hereby crown this "Best Gamay in the June VB/SC Wine Club". That's gotta be worth something, right?
