Vincent Caillé ‘La Part du Colibri’ Gamay
Region: Loire Valley, France
Ah, my affair with Gamays continue. I just can’t quit these fuckers.
I love this Gamay because it’s meeting in the middle between the girl I was and the woman I’ve become. It’s a fancy French wine, but on a budget. I remember the first time I bought $12 wine. I won’t name names, but I remember not being that impressed with it in comparison to the $3 - $6 I was drinking.
Well, this is a huge difference. There is such a huge difference between a large producers $12 and small producers $12. It’s like comparing Kraft cheese to Tillamook.
Tillamook is still a larger producer.
But their Sharp Cheddar is BOMB AS HELL, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
(Plus it’s still in the relative price range, ya dig? Can’t be telling you to give up shredded bags for Hooks ten year aged, now can I?)
The fucking point is, this wine is delicious and a steal. It’s lively and lovely and will please both eccentric red wine lovers and light red wine lovers alike.
I have to go because it’s Friday and my friends are here and I’ve been working all week on a sample chapter for my book that I finished last night– yes, my book you read that correctly, very exciting stuff, sorry that’s why I haven’t been around, thank you to everyone who has been a supporter + fuck you to the commenter who said I talked like I was twelve last week, seriously suck my dick– SO. THIS IS MY TIME TO CHILL. WHICH YOU ALL KNOW I VALUE AND RELISH IN.
I HOPE YOU TAKE A BOTTLE OF VINCENT CALLIE TO CHILL WITH YOU NEXT TIME YOU CHILL CAUSE I FEEL LIKE THIS IS GOING TO BE A VERY CHILL CHILL. LIKE THE CHILLEST. LOOK AT ME. I LOOK LIKE SOMEONE YOUR DAD BEFRIENDED AT THE BAR ON A CRUISE SHIP AND GAVE YOUR BEDROOM AWAY TO WHILE THEY “GET BACK ON THEIR FEET”.
Which is true.
You’re never getting your bedroom back.
It’s mine now.
Your dad and I and Vincent Caillé Gamay are all best friends now.
100% not sorry. xoxoox
Tasting Notes: Gorgeous garnet color, like seriously? Someone get me some earrings made of this shit. The bouquet is super fresh, like wet lemongrass and rosemary tanning in the summer sun. The palate is bright, with lots of blackberries and lavender. I kinda want a candle of this. But it does not taste like a candle. Except maybe it does cause I own some expensive ass candles I’d definitely be down to drink.
Ross Test: Very good. A little acidic on the back end, but still, very good.
