Gamay

Gamay

Over 50% of all Gamay vines are planted in Beaujolais; indeed, it is the only grape allowed to be planted in the region. It flowers early, making it prone to frost, and is generally low in tannins.

Gamay is sometimes criticised for producing quite acidic and harshly edged wines; however, in low-yielding vintages, Gamay can produce quite elegant, floral and juicy wines.

The grape is grown elsewhere in France - notably in the Tourraine (in the Loire Valley), where it can produce light and (typically) cheaper alternatives to Beaujolais.

Colours and Flavours

Since cherry is the dominant flavour, bright and refreshing, the wines of Gamay derivation are usually pink-purple in appearance. Due to the pleasant taste and non-tannic nature, this variety is easily approachable.
