The jolly-ness continues... as always, a delightful bottle of Steve Edmunds' gamay. While this wine might lack the distinct sense of place found in the best crus beaujolais, it compensates with impeccable balance and unmatched liveliness on the palate. Bright red fruits in abundance and bracing acidity make it a perfect match with summertime foods - we had it with grilled portobello 'shrooms, fresh corn, and salad. With a light chill, then popped and poured, almost impossible to stop sipping.
strawberry is a bit overripe and smucker-ish to be beaujolais but complimented by dark purple plums and berries as well, but this still manages a winderful acid backbone and granitic minerality to still appease the francophiles. certainly a "serious" interpretation of gamay, but still accessible
