Gamay "Les Passantes", Marie Rocher 2019 (Loire, France)

This is from two 30-40 year old parcels in Faverolles-sur-Cher, destemmed and aged in a combination of fiberglass tanks and old barrels. Beautifully made with a deep core of ripe dark cherry fruit and silky, but substantial structure that feels more serious than the breezy adult juice box vibes that natural Gamay can sometimes be (rightly) associated with.
