Division-Villages l’Avoiron Rose of Gamay 2019
The 2019 l’Avoiron is really beautiful in the glass, a rose-tinged, pale but just ripe strawberry hue. The primary aromatics scream warm days outside, with watermelon flesh close to the rind and just ripe strawberry notes. The wine has excellent energy, with more density than we usually get from this wine, while remaining light on it’s feet. This vintage is easily our first bottling of this wine that will likely age well for a few years—the complete aromatics, chalky minerality and fleshy weight means drink up now or wait for the honey-ed notes that will come with time.
