93 Points

Wednesday, February 20, 2013 - Tasted over 2 days. Started out very youthful and showing a tremendous amount of young Gamay weirdness. Improved quite a bit as it got some air, but this really kicked into gear on the second night. This morphed into something really special - beautifully balanced showing really pure fruit and some earthiness with excellent depth and some fine tannins on the finish that really framed every sip nicely. I can understand that not everybody is on board with Gamay flavors, but there is no denying how well-made this wine is. Amazing quality for the < $20 price. I know some will scoff at the high score I've given, but seriously, there is nothing to criticize and everything to love about this wine. I feel totally justified with the score and am probably underscoring it just because it is Gamay. If you pop one of these soon, make sure to give it lots of air. Looks like 2011 is another great vintage for Cru Bojo.
