Jean-Francois Merieau Le Bois Jacou Gamay 2012 wine review by (PB)
Daffodil, lots of spices, white pepper hint, with big "tequila" aroma, with cherry,strawberry fruit, and grapefruit! (unique)
Palate--subdued fruit with big white pepper and spice flavor, on a steely finish.
Wow--this "Touraine" Gamay I would ever have guessed was a Gamay. Unlike any Gamay I have ever had. Quite puckery tannins, bracing structure and should be an interesting pairing with my broiled cod in a tomatoey light sauce.
Expect to pay around $16 for this and I am glad I bought it as it is a truly unique experience so raise a glass!
