Grape Variety: Gamay

Gamay (Gamay Noir à Jus Blanc in full) is a dark-skinned grape variety famous for producing the lighter-style red wines of Beaujolais. While the variety offers fresh red fruit and candied aromas, it typically delivers little in the way of flavor concentration and body weight.

Characteristic fruit aromas of Gamay wines are red cherries and strawberries, often with boiled candy and banana notes. Some darker wines from the granite soils of the Beaujolais Crus can show more dark-raspberry and black-pepper qualities. Gamay usually has a good acid structure with very low tannins, making it better suited for early consumption.

Region Hierarchy
  • Beaujolais Villages wine region

    Beaujolais Villages is the appellation for red, white and rosé wines from an area made up of 38 villages in the north of the Beaujolais region. The hilly, granitic terroir here is considered superior to that of the flatter lands in the south of Beaujolais and, as a result, Beaujolais Villages wines are considered to be of a higher quality than those of the straight Beaujolais appellation. These light, juicy wines, based overwhelmingly on the Gamay grape variety, display varietal characters of red fruit and spice.
