Had the Bass Phillip Gamay 2010
Ok fruit driven wine, nose was better than the palate
Not a patch on a Fleurie IMO

arrived back in Lyon late last night.
interesting, Georges, the owner of Antic wine here, and previous world sommelier of the year, thinks beechworth and Bass Phillip Gamay are the most exciting prospects in Australia atm.
he worked at Walters wine bar for many years, and has an excellent knowledge of Aus wine.

not sure I agree!!! but hey, wine is like music, we all have our favourites. :cheers: :cheers:

I love the red wine. You can also go for Port.

Hi Michel
Antic is pretty good, have a serious hunt down stairs along the middle rack, there are bargains to be had there…. got a Trapet GC 1976 for 100 euro (less than the current release price) and it was absolutely stunning. Georges is a great guy, he will recommend a few off-the beaten track french wines that are all both interesting and delicious!!
If you are into Bordeaux, there are bargains to be had everywhere in the supermarkets as the sea of unsold 2007's and 2008's have now hit the shelves.
