Bachelder 2019 Gamay Noir - Willms "Les Naturistes", 1983 Plantation

Another mouthful of a wine from the Violette release of spring 2021- and another mouthful of a name from Thomas “I-need-to-tell-you-all-about-the-wine-on-the-front-label” Bachelder (this also mentions 55% whole cluster and everything else). This is a nice red fruited version of Gamay that's soft and juicy from a vineyard with “problems” creating enough fruit. These vines are old and have some disease issues that make it hard to produce an abundance of fruit, but Thomas maintains the fruit they do make is “special” ... And he proves it with this bottling: soft and juicy, but with great acid punch ... This is a delicious sip that's both delicate and with enough punch on the finish to make it memorable.  Price: $27.95 - Rating: ****+
