91/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
New to Advintage, the La Belle Angèle range is inspired by the early 20th century - the 'roaring 20's'. La Belle Angèle was a carefree and frivolous character of the 20's and these wines are possess the same values as her - elegance and all the charm. The chic art-deco-esque labels are the icing on the cake.
The 2020 gamay noir is a great entry-level, juicy wine that embodies the same values of La Belle Angele herself. The perfect balance of fruity and floral notes make this a great food wine. Best served lightly chilled with lighter meals - think fish, cheeses or pork and you're right on the money.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "Youthfully charming and elegantly perfumed with sweet cherry, raspberry, floral and subtle spice aromas, it's juicy and rounded in the mouth delivering soothing texture and bright fruit intensity. Medium-bodied and supple with tasty flavours."
