2006 Château Courtinat Tradition

The Gamay grapes that went into this wine hail from the St. Porcain region of France.

In the glass, it had a lighter, translucent color. Light in body as well, it had natural, slightly tart berry fruit backed by lemony acidity. Although light, it didn't lack for purity or concentration. I also got a sense of oregano and savory meatloaf in the finish, which might sound weird but I'm just the messenger here. There was also a nice mineral component.

Overall, this $12.84 bottle of wine from Garagiste is ready to drink now and is something to choose when looking for a lighter, primarily berry fruit style that tastes natural.

It gets two thumbs up for a good QPR.

Here's the matching YouTube music video, which, as always, you can click here if you don't see it below.
