Merieau Gamay “Le Bois Jacou” 2016

Merieau Gamay Bois Jacou

I really like this wine for its combination of Gamay-bright berry fruit, rustic character, light body, intensity of flavor and great price. Gamay, while not associated with Touraine (mid-Loire Valley, France) is definitely a “player” in the area, and rightly so. The cool climate, chalk/limestone soils and rich wine history make it a natural. Jean-Francois Merieau makes an honest, delicious, nervy style. Get raspberries, dried red cherries, tarragon, black tea and cola. A natural food wine. That said, I shared a bottle with my wife watching a film, sans food, and we were very happy. Opens up quickly.

Jean-Francois Merieau Gamay “Bois Jacou” is on my “Best of the Best” list of Awesome and Hall of Fame value wines.

Not all wine is created equal.
