Joel Delaunay 2020 Gamay "La Brossette" (Touraine) ORGANIC

Thierry also makes a blend of Gamay and cabernet franc in La Brossette, but it is a vineyard that seems to have a special aptitude for pure Gamay, as evidenced by this impressive wine, which marries the accessibility of the variety to a deeply fruity wine with powerful earth tones. Simultaneously serious and pleasurable.
