Wines of the Beaujolais – Lot 2
Rouge | Gamay | 0,75 & 1,5 CL | Beaujolais
Granite soils - such as those of the Beaujolais, where it reigns supreme - are the preferred terroir of Gamay. Characterised by its freshness of fruit and its lively vinosity - too often pushed to the point of caricature, particularly in the Beaujolais "primeur" style - Gamay is magnified when vinified "à la beaujolaise" i.e., in whole bunches (carbonic or semi-carbonic maceration), which exalts the organoleptic singularity of the grape variety and softens its acidity and its natural tannins, whereas Burgundian vinification gives a more structured texture. Farmed and produced following natural methods, Gamays are at once deliciously drinkable and offer real depth.
