Beaujolais is always on our minds here @archive909 and Nouveau day is no exception! Mountains of gamay by the bottle, 3 by the glass and a secret stash in the cellar if you say the magic words! #gamaytheforcebewithyou 🍷🍇👌
A couple of new beer buddies hitting the list today, full of that flavourful funk to warm your little buns, buds.
Gamay holds a special spot in our hearts (sshh don’t tell the other wines) and you have and will always be able to find at least one on by the glass at Archive. @1wineaday may also have “a problem” when it comes to collecting it (the Gamay portion of the bottle list has been entered as evidence).
New Gamay for the glass and bottle lists. By the glass 2016 Beaujolais “Cuvée Kéké” and by the bottle 2015 Morgon “Vieilles Vignes” from Kewin Descombes. The Beaujolais, while it could stand up to some thought, is definitely Vin Crushable giving the hedonistic immediate pleasure that would make Dionysus proud. The Morgon, while it is still easy to find the bottom of the bottle, is a wine that can take a little more meditation on it’s depth and character and might have you all like that statue by Rodin as you ponder. “Kewin Descombes (or ‘Kéké’ to his mates) is a Beaujolais thoroughbred, the son of Georges Descombes and half-brother to the equally precocious Damien Coquelet, so it was almost inevitable that Kéké would take up the mantle. Still only in his twenties, he is following in his father’s footsteps and only uses hand-harvested grapes from organic vineyards in and around Morgon and ferments traditionally with whole clusters and wild yeasts and only uses minimal sulphur at bottling to keep the wine stable and fresh”

Great tasting last night with; Kirsty from @bkwines and their lovely rosé. Taras ( @ochotabarrels ), Gareth ( @gentlefolkwine ) and Michael ( @murdochhill_wines ) pouring some of Gareth’s amazing Pinot Noir and chatting. Charlotte Dolton’s tasty wines and then a selection of bottle shots of some of the other wines we tried #aussiewine #sommsontour #gettingdowntoitinthebasketrange #ifthewinebardoesntworkoutimrunningawaytothehills #goodlife #organicwine #organiclife #basketrange
Here’s another of @1wineaday ‘s photos, go check there if you want to see more “Posted @withrepost • @1wineaday While he’s brought the Nero, and his wines are 🔥 he’s certainly not fiddling while shit burns. Brad “Brash”Higgins, his locally made amphorae, his vines and one of his wines that I’m just gonna lie and say was made for me #sommsontour #aussiewine #brashhiggins #cinsarefinejuststayawayfromthedeaelyones “
For those who missed a great party last night we are still pouring these beauties btg until we run out. A few of them are going to sneak on to our bottle list as well.
Thanks to @gutoggau for putting faces to the wines last night. Thanks to @liffordgram and @grapewitches for making it happen. A special thanks to @adriennefriesen for helping us execute the event and for being the best door person on Dundas West.
