TN: Dom.Giachino GiacPotes RedSavoie '20...(short/boring)

Tried thisw wine last night:

  1. Dom.Giachino GiacPotes Red Savoie Wine (12%; Gamay/Mondeuse; JeffreyAlpertSlctns/Tenafly/NJ; Home - Domaine Giachino - Organic wines) 2020: Med.color; strong grapey/Gamay/earthy/bit loamy slight Mondeuse/licorice/plummy light pencilly/oak fairly rustic nose; lightly tart strong grapey/Gamay/earthy/loamy slight plummy fairly rustic flavor w/ light soft tannins; long bit soft/grapey/Gamay earthy/mushroomy/rustic finish w/ light soft tannins; seems more like a simple/dull Cru Bojo than anything; no Mondeuse character nor any high-toned floral Alpine red character; a pretty dull Gamay red. $22.00 (AV)

More bleedermouse from TheBloodyPulpit:

  1. This was a Savoie red that I bought for my SantaFe Wino Backroads of France tasting, but decided not to use. Smart choice as this was pretty dull Gamay. Showed no Mondeuse nor Alpine character whatsoever.
    This is a natural wine in all its glory. However, it shows no natty nor funky character whatsoever. Perfectly clean if a bit rustic, but no natty.
