Vincent Giraudon Tentation Gamay Cote Roannaise AOP 2015
$38.00 – $75.00
If you are a fan of Cru Beaujolais from Morgon or Moulin au Vent you like really like this. A bit bunchy, a bit herbal (not green but herbal umami sort of gaminess), a bit mushroom concentrated intense fresh with a swag of lifted red cherry, dark cherry and spicy length with a really balanced acid/tannin profile. Silky succulent French gear at a super dooper fantastic price. It’s actually a different clone from Beaujolais that produces smaller tighter bunches and I believe a little more blue fruit (plum and blueberry). The Somms in town are scared of the age but myself, more importantly my wife and half of Healesville are loving it. It’s in a good space drinking wise and if you know the style you will realise that it needed time anyway.
That’s why I bought the lot.!
$38 or 3 for $75
