Gamay Noir à Jus Blanc is a purple wine grape best known for the light red wines of Beaujolais. While it offer beautiful red fruit and candied scents, Gamay offers little in term of a concentrated flavor. Normally this wine is processed as a simple wine, with a lightweight body. However, there are varieties that produce deep and accomplished Gamay based wines.

Gamay’s typical flavors are notes of strawberries and red cherry. If produced using the Carbonic Maceration method, then the essence of bananas and boiled sweets are recognized.

It is thought that Gamay arrived in France from Germany in the 14th century, and at that time, it was a most unwelcome guest. Untrusting of the unfamiliar taste and texture, the ruling dukes of Burgundy banded together in an attempted to outlaw Gamy. Despite the inhospitality, the variety entrenched itself in Macannais, Savoie, and Touraine, but its undisputed home is Beaujolais. Here it lives comfortably, in the hilly granite based soil which it favors. WineStyle recommends this affordable wine the following foods: salmon fillet with roasted fennel, Moroccan lamb tagine with apricot, and roast turkey with cranberry sauce.

The Carbonic Maceration technique is often used in Gamay’s most famous incarnation: Beaujolais Nouveau. This wine is sent on the third Thursday of the November directly after harvest. Traditionally, light wines such as this were made solely for vineyard employees. Wine marketers in the 1970s-1980s were inspired by this (formerly private) wine and campaigned its release as a yearly occasion.

In recent times, Beaujolais Nouveau has not found critical acclaim as it once did, and Gamay’s reputation as a result, has been somewhat sullied. However Gamay is experiencing a minor revival as Beaujolais's other wine varieties begin to appeal to critics and wine lovers alike. These wines are processed traditionally, and nicely oaked, the best of which can be cellared for up to 10 years. Some examples would be: Brouilly, Moulin-a-Vent, Julienas, Fleurie, Chiroubles, and Morgon. Enjoy the revival of this unique grape, these wines are listed at a good price in our online shop, our delivery is very fast and your sale is always a guaranteed purchase. Gamay is also found in Switzerland, where it’s often blended with Pinot Noir. There are some vineyards in Canada, New Zealand, and Italy, as well as Croatia, Serbia, and Kosovo. In the early 2000’s, Gamay was thought to have been planted in California, but what many vineyards thought was Gamay, was actually an entirely different French variety: Valdeguie. The resulting mislabeled wines caused a lot of confusion, and debate. Wine bottled and labeled as “Gamay Beaujolais” was in fact, just clones of Pinot Noir.
