“B” No 7, Alexandre Bain, Gamay, 2017
A Gamay from Pouilly Fumé, from this famed producer. His whites are known for their rich texture, owing to botrytis on the grapes and his reds have a similar weight to them. This is quite different from any Gamay you’ll have tasted from Beaujolais – it’s rich, full, gamey and has a wild, herby note to it and a savoury core. Low intervention and expressive wine making.
