THE GAMAY NOIR

Gamay Noir, a noble and generous grape variety, offers many surprises. Grown since the Middle Ages, it has not only found a natural home in the welcoming soils of Beaujolais, but has been exported to other growing regions in France and around the world. This black grape with white juice and plump, lush berries, thrives in the temperate climate and poor granitic soils, typical of the volcanic, Beaujolais region. Our vineyards stretch out over this beautiful landscape, its geological complexity evident in the pink and blue granite, shale, white and golden limestone, marl and clay. These soils create an ideal terroir for the black Gamay variety.

Through a regimen of sustainable agriculture, our vines are cultivated with great care and respect for place by a small team of passionate vinegrowers. They are aided in their task by an unexpected, local partner – the owl – a natural and effective predator to both rodents and pests of the vine. This noble and elegant animal is the emblematic icon of our world-class Gamay Noir.

OUR GAMAY

FRUIT AND ELEGANCE

Our Gamay Noir exhibits a deep ruby color, shows hints of subtle spice and is bursting with lush red fruits on the palate. Remarkably soft with nice concentration, the mouth feel is rich and offers ripe fruit intensity along with fine, supple tannins and soft, bright acidity. Delicious!
