Mercurey La Framboise 2016

Domaine Faiveley has a number of different Burgundies and most of them are reasonable priced compared to many other "managers". Their Mercurey monopole La Framboise is one of the best buys and especially when it comes in good vintages like 2016. His other Mercurey and Bourgogne rouge are also very good buys and worth a try. Nice and attractive bouquet of red fruit (perhaps towards redcurrant) and flowers. refreshing acidity and reasonable good length. A very good village Burgundy from perhaps not the best villages in Burgundy. Good quality price ratio. Mercurey La Framboise 2016 Domaine Faiveley Ca 280 NOK or 17€

Brouilly 2017 by Ch. Cambon

This is a 100% Gamay from the village of Brouilly in Beaujolais. The wine maker favours minimum intervention and the grapes are grown organic. The colour is red but slightly unclear! (no filter). Let it rest in the glass before trying it. Lovely smell of red fruit and spicy cherries and plum. This is a light bodied red with a very juicy taste and light tannins. Refreshing wine that should be served slightly chilled and will give you a good touch of summer days. Brouilly 2017 Ch.Cambon Beaujolais ca 220 NOK or 13€

Scarpa 2007 Barbaresco

This Barbaresco by Scarpa from 2007 is drinking beautifully now. The grapes come from a plot called Tetti in Neive, thus the name Tettineive on the bottle. The vilification and maturation has taken place in big french oak casks and one year in bottle before being released. Beautiful smell of rose, tar, red fruit and cherries. Elegant taste with still firm tannins and medium + acidity. Needs a bit of time to open in the glass. Works well in a  Zalto glass and with confit de canard. Barbaresco "Tettineive" 2007 Scarpa ca 35€
