Gamay

Gamay

Gamay is a red wine grape variety. It is most notably grown in Beaujolais and the Loire Valley in France. Gamay is a very vigorous vine which tends not to root very deep on alkaline soils resulting in pronounced hydrological stress on the vines over the growing season with a correspondingly high level of acidity in the grapes. The acidity is softened through carbonic maceration, a process that also allows the vibrant youthful fruit expressions reminiscent of bright crushed strawberries and raspberries, as well as deep floral notes of lilac and violets. The wines typically have the flavour of sour cherries, black pepper, and dried berry, as well as fresh-cut stone and chalk.
