WTN: 2018 Gamay

Another gorgeous bottle of 2018 Alex Foillard Brouilly, so juicy and succulent but also tactile and fine. Very very very easy to drink now. I am now tentatively considering myself a convert. Although the wines are almost more expensive than his father Jean, the bottles of 2018 Brouilly that I drank this summer were so much fun that I will explore further.

Much more fun than a recent bottle of 2018 Domaine des Pothiers Côte Roannaise Domaine. The Pothiers was dark brambly and way too raw for me to really enjoy. There is a lot of 2018 wine packed in here, but the structure is layered and hints of elegance. When you consider the $22 price (half of the Foillard), it probably deserves a lot of credit and admiration for the quality. But the expression is too primary and does not have enough lift for me right now.
