Blue Mountain has taken gamay seriously for awhile now, as evidenced by the 12-30 year old vines at their estate. It seems like they've really honed a house style here. This wine will be familiar to those that tasted the 2018 vintage. It's flinty and savoury with a faint hint of oak after aging in older French barriques and puncheons. But this vintage brings brighter fruit to the glass, led by spiced black raspberry, making this really attractive and seamless. It's juicy and fresh, so easy to enjoy now, but the relatively structured style means the best is still to come.
Score: 90 points -- Geoffrey Moss, Gismondi On Wine, Mar 2021
