2009 Laurent Martray BROUILLY Vieilles Vignes "Combiaty" (Beaujolais region, France)
Brilliant, crystalline ruby color. Very bright, vibrant, crunchy, grapey scents, with a light note of clean, stony minerality. Medium-light bodied, with dry, clean crisp cherry and grape flavors, fading into a stony finish. Great acidity makes it feel very crisp and refreshing. Very clean, medium length finish. A great accompaniment to light dinners. (I had it with spicy Thai basil chicken, however, which kind of overwhelmed the wine.) B. Was $15.99 at Arrowine. Imported by Elite Wine Imports, Lorton, VA.
