|TASTING NOTE: Five years deep the Tawse gamay continues down a (Côte de Brouilly) Beaujolais cru road with a consistency of style, making use of one fifth new oak for eight months. The fruit darkens to variegated inflections of blackberry and black cherry with a decidedly toasty char. A silty streak of mineral salts runs through this meaty gamay like a vein of sapid caramel in a roll of bresaola. There is quite a bit of gastronomy in the '16 so it should be both food versatile and develop further character for two to three years. I see some liquorice, porchetta and rouladen in its not too distant future. Drink 2017-2020. Tasted October 2017. Score - 89 (Michael Godel, winealign.com, Nov. 5, 2017)
