Updated: Jun 22, 2021

Hello! Or should I say bonjour? 😉 Okay I have to admit that opening was cheesy but I am super excited to share my review with you for this Gamay from the Beaujolais region in France. It was rated 90 points by Jamessuckling.com and is only $6.99 from Trader Joe’s! Read below for my tasting notes:

  1. Vintage: 2018

  2. Alcohol percentage: 14.5%

  3. Appellation: Beaujolais region (France)

  4. Appearance: medium intensity, ruby in color.

  5. Nose: light-medium intensity, with primary aromas.

  6. Sweetness: off-dry

  7. Aromas and flavors: strawberry jam aromas; flavors of bright strawberry and red cherry.

  8. Conclusion: good wine

  9. Price: $6.99

Food Recommendation: Dateline and chill type of vibe. In other words, this wine can be enjoyed on it’s own or can be paired beautifully with duck.

Conclusion: You can enjoy this wine chilled or at room temperature because of it’s light bodied complexity.

Bonus Tip: Let the wine open up after 20 minutes before serving to capture a better drinking experience. Watch me taste this wine “live” on YouTube here.

Wine Rating: 92 Points

*Any wines rated 90 points or more, I recommend. Wines rated 89 points or below means it’s an acceptable wine, but I wouldn’t spend your money on it.*
