Gamay Noir

1752 visitors
Gamay is a purple-colored grape variety used to make red wines, most notably grown in Beaujolais. Its full name is Gamay Noir à Jus Blanc, and it probably originated as a mutation of Pinot Noir. It is a very old cultivar, being mentioned already in the 1400s. It has been cultivated because it makes for abundant production rather than due to the quality of the wine made from it.

Gamay-based wines are typically light bodied and fruity, often exhibiting tropical flavors and aromas - reminiscent of bananas, meant to be drunk young, although certain crus (Moulin A Vent for one) produce richer wines with slightly more body and aging potential.

2004 Gamay Noir
Napa Valley

Our Gamay is produced from one of the last remaining Gamay vineyards in Napa Valley with about two acres dedicated to this exquisite varietal. Located north of Calistoga, just off ...morethe Silverado Trail, the vineyard is situated next to Garnett Creek. At 50 years old the vineyards are among the oldest in the country today. Georges Duboef visited the vineyard in the early 1980’s declaring the grapes as authentic Gamay Noir.
