Gamay

Gamay is a vigorously growing grape variety and is highly acidic unless it is carefully crafted by the winemakers. The grape is used to make Beaujolais and is suited to similar growing conditions as Pinot Noir. I can't wait for November to come round and the latest batch of Beaujolais Noveaus 2008 being released!

2007 Vin De Pays De L'Ardeche
Cave De Saint Desirat
Brilliant value easy summer drinking. A pale purple colour with a strong and very characterful aroma of bubblegum, plasticine, jam and soft fruits. A highly aromatic red wine on the palate as well- the soft and light body gives way to refreshing bite.
82/100
