Malivoire Gamay 2006

July 26th, 2008 Sean Posted in Canada, Gamay Noir No Comments »

We had the fortune of previewing this wine months ago at an event in Toronto. Since then I have been waiting “patiently” for this wine to make it’s general release. While I love a good Pinot, a great Gamay is irresistible. Very close to $20.00 but very worth it for that summer dinner or BBQ with good friends.
To describe this wine in a word I would choose “elegant”. While it does incorporate some of the earthy qualities of a Pinot, it’s a very refined and balanced bottle. Ontario climate certainly has a lot to do with this all star.
Tip: 10 minutes in the fridge before severing - slight chill

Château des Charmes Gamay Noir 2006

I’m betting the extra 5 dollars to get out of Chateau des Charmes’ entry level gamay would have paid off.
Gamay is a light red to begin with, but I would have liked to taste some more prominent flavors in this vintage.
Tip: tulip glass
At a Glance
Taste cherry, raspberry
Smell raspberry, cherry, berries
Food grilled chicken
