The Holly Gamay according to Herve Ravera.

We are happy to announce that 2012 vintage of Herve Ravera’s Roure Libre 5 has made its way to our warehouse. Since his first vintage Herve’s wines have improved exponentially year after year and 2012 is no exception, it may even be his greatest offering to date. While 2012 was a very tough vintage (too much rain and mildew resulted in tiny yields) Herve was able to take what was left and produce around 2,000 bottles of incredibly high quality Gamay, of which we have received a generous amount. The wine is wonderfully fresh and spicy with some notes of ripe cherries It gains structure after a bit of air and the texture and length are fantastic. We are honestly floored by how great this wine is.
