Gamay Noir

Barton & Guestier – 2006

Beaujolais, France

Gamay is a purple-colored grape variety used to make red wines, most notably grown in Beaujolais. The Gamay grape is thought to have appeared first in the village of the Gamay, south of Beaune, in the 1360s. The grape brought relief to the village growers following the decline of the Black Death. In contrast to the Pinot Noir variety, Gamay ripened two weeks earlier and was less difficult to cultivate. It also produced a strong, fruitier wine in a much larger abundance.

Gamay-based wines are typically light bodied and fruity. This wine is fresh and lively with light raspberry and strawberry aromas.

$5.00 / glass
