2020 UVA NON GRATA Gamay 75cl (Lyonnais, France)
Style - Vibrant
Grapes - 100% Gamay
Tasting - Exactly the sort of Gamay the textbooks tell you to expect: All joie de vivre crushed red berries with the scent of peony and violet. Given it's price it is a 'hell yes' (or perhaps a 'oui d'enfer'?) from us.
FYI: Uva Non Grata - meaning unwelcome grape - is an oblique reference to Philippe The Bold of Burgundy's famous expulsion of the vine from his kingdom.
