VQA Gamay

VQA Gamay Wine Details
Price: $14.95 per bottle

Description: Aromas include black cherries, violets and spices, while ripe red berries, black pepper and notes of licorice hint at the palate. Strong tannins and a warming alcohol effect create an excellent wine paired with dark chocolate and a romantic evening by a crackling fire.

Varietal Definition
The red grape of Beaujolais. Vinified by a process known as 'macération carbonique'* if produces light, fruit driven wines for early consumption. At home in the granite hills of Beaujolais it is a vigorous producer but susceptible to rot. Sometimes blended with Pinot Noir under the appellation 'Bourgogne Passe-Tout-Grains'. Also grown quite extensively in the Loire Valley notably in Touraine.
