I'm a sucker for Passetoutgrains and this one is a corker, especially for twenty dollars. 50% destemmed fruit and no sulphur until bottling. According to Virginie at the domaine, the Gamay is especially vibrant in this vintage, adding plenty of freshness. The nose is very pretty, teetering between strawberry and cherry, with a touch of red plum. Despite the warmth of '18, on the palate this wine is lithe, juicy rather than heavy. There is the telltale note of cracked pepper at the back end, emblematic of Gamay on limestone. I drank this with matzoh ball soup but honestly you could have it with anything. Sam Ehrlich
