    This 100% Gamay from The Coteaux du Lyonnais is a recent project of Guillaume Clusel, whose family has been producing wine in Cote Rotie since the 1950s. It comes from on-average 30-year-old vines that lie between the Rhone Valley to the South and the famed Beaujolais region to the north. The fruit is opulent and rich, creating a dense purple robe with a bright pink outline. On the nose, cranberry and lavender perfume. On the palate, dense Gamay fruitiness--cherry and cranberry--with a solid tannic structure that quickly slides into a smooth raspberry acid finish. A very fun, unique and delicious regional wine! ​

    This wine really took me by surprise. After having sampled a disappointing string of wines one afternoon, my colleague urged my to try this one. What a terrific Gamay! This is the kind of sub $20 red that I hope to come across in a bistro or café but rarely do. One that exceeds its price with delicious berry and blue fruit and a real sense of place. It's a versatile red that will pair with a wide range of foods (and maybe even seafood). Whether you're looking for a great table red or don't feel like springing for a Cru Beaujolais, try this one.
