Jacques Charlet 2009 Champ de Cour Gamay (Moulin-à-Vent)
Such a concentrated wine, with the intensity of red Burgundy but with the juiciness of Beaujolais. Swathes of smooth fruit wash around the palate, coupled with a touch of minerality and a dense texture. Age for 2–3 years and more.
Jacques Charlet 2009 Les Charmes Gamay (Morgon)
A rich wine with spice and red fruits, the tannins well integrated. It shows aging potential both from its ripe fruit and its dry, firm core. The wine is very structured, powerful, a fine example of this exceptional vintage.
