Gamay

Gamay is a purple-coloured grape used to make red wines, most notably grown in Beaujolais and in the Loire Valley. Its full name is “Gamay Noir à Jus Blanc”. It is a very old cultivar, mentioned as long ago as the 15th Century. It has been often cultivated because it makes for abundant production; however, it can produce wines of distinction when planted on acidic soils, which help to soften the grape's naturally high acidity. Gamay-based wines are typically light-bodied and fruity.
