Malivoire Courtney Gamay 2015 (Niagara)
SCORE: 90 PRICE: $27.95 Substantial for a gamay, more in line with higher-end “cru” wines of France’s Beaujolais region rather than more familiar and pedestrian Beaujolais reds. Malivoire excels with this crisp, light-bodied grape (and others, to be sure), dishing up in this bottling an earthy and slightly charredroasted essence to complement the variety’s classically bright cherry fruit. Perfect for salmon, other weighty fish, roast ham or cassoulet. And nice in general for autumn. Available in Ontario Vintages stores.
