Gamay at its Best

Gamay at its Best

Historically, November is Beaujolais Nouveau month, famous for being the first wine from the vintage in Europe to be released. The grape used is Gamy and this wine tends to be light and almost bubble gummy in style style and flavour. If you would like to try some, then please ask, we often have a few bottles left over. What are often overlooked are the smaller Cru Villages of Beaujolais of which Fleurie is one.

It always amazes me how I how one grape can produce such a differing style of wine and Gamy can do that. As a style Gamy from the village of Fleurie producers richer and more full-flavoured style.

This Fleurie is made under the careful eye of Xavier Barbet whose family founded the winery back in the 1820s. Specialising in wines from Macon and Beaujolais, technically he is a negiocaiant. This means he buys wine from small contracted producers. This Fleurie continues to be a good reliable wine, and ideal with roasted white meats.
