2019 Côteaux du Lyonnais Traboules Rouge, Guillaume Clusel

This Gamay is a revelation. It’s made by one of Côte-Rôtie’s most accomplished winemakers, Guillaume Clusel, whose Syrahs are as enthralling as they come. This Gamay comes from the decomposed granitic soils that lie south of Lyon. It is a juicy and delicious red at a great price, with silky tannins and a fresh backbone of acidity couched in ripe, red berry fruit.

2019 Côteaux du Lyonnais Traboules Rouge, Guillaume Clusel
Domaine Clusel-Roch

The wines of Gilbert Clusel and Brigitte Roch - hence the domaine’s name - are known for their elegance and pure fruit. The couple started the domaine in 1989 by themselves, with little more than the vines planted by Gilbert’s grandfather before the second World War. With gradual investment in a modern cellar, they continued in the vineyards and began to produce wine organically in 2002. It’s now their son, Guillaume, who takes the lead, whose wines leap to ever greater heights.
