“The Bourgogne Gamay 2018 is made up of 85% of Beaujolais Crus with 15% Burgundian Pinot Noir completing the cuvée. This wine has a beautiful ruby color and offers floral aromas on the nose. The mouth is round, well-balanced, with flavours of red fruits, chlorophyll and fresh almond.“
Bourgogne Gamay became a new regional appellation as of the 2011 vintage. The grapes must come exclusively from the Beaujolais Crus (Brouilly, Chenas, Chiroubles, Cote-de-Brouilly, Fleurie, Julienas, Morgon, Moulin-à-Vent, Regnie, Saint-Amour). Gamay from the vineyards of the Beaujolais and Beaujolais-Villages appellations cannot be used in the case of this new appellation. Our approach is to produce a wine which focuses on fruit and freshness with consistent quality.
