Rippon Gamay Noir Rare 2016

Old vine gamay, well 29-year-old, or so, and produced with a gentle hand. Such pretty floral, sweet fruited perfume – it’s a funny thing when you say sweetness because it’s often pejorative, but here so far from that, so inviting, familiar and good. The palate has a tightness, a strict rule in shape and form, long, pivoting on fruit, savouriness and brisk acidity...

Product Description

Old vine gamay, well 29-year-old, or so, and produced with a gentle hand.
Such pretty floral, sweet fruited perfume – it’s a funny thing when you say sweetness because it’s often pejorative, but here so far from that, so inviting, familiar and good.
The palate has a tightness, a strict rule in shape and form, long, pivoting on fruit, savouriness and brisk acidity, with a swathe of lacy tannin chiming in.
Such personality and tension, structure and sinew. Seriously good.
