Trail Estate Gamay Noir VQA Ontario 2014 

Trail Estate Gamay Noir VQA Ontario 2014  Light but young garnet color. Nose of sweet red berries, earth and spices. Flavors of sour and slightly sweet red fruit like sour cherries, cranberries, rhubarb and spices.

Domaine J. Chamonard Fleurie La Madone 2015

Domaine J. Chamonard Fleurie La Madone 2015 Relatively dark and foggy purple color. Nose of blueberrie pastries on which one would’ve thrown on wet earth and a bunch of spices. Rich mouth feel without falling into heaviness, but doesn’t feel much complex either at this young stage of its life. To its defense, it gets much better with air and changes quickly so, if opened now, it should be followed […]
