For centuries maligned, mistreated and misunderstoodGamay was outlawed by Philip the Bold in 1395. Some vignerons rebelled, hiding forbidden Gamay vines amongst ‘noble' Pinot Noir. In their honour we ‘release' the deliberately disruptive Gamay, bottled without appellation and without rules!

Gamay loves the granite/siliceous soils of the vineyards in the hills to the north west of Lyon in eastern France. Vintage_2019 was a warm, dry year across France and the grapes were hand picked deliberately early to maintain freshness. In the cellar, grapes are vinified using traditional carbonic maceration techniques (where fermentation is started by the weight of berries in the vat, crushing those below) followed by a short cuvasion to keep the up front, juicy fruit characters in this lighter style of wine.

Tasting notes

Bouncy, crunchy Gamay, this no-fuss wine is an irresistible fruit bomb packed with amazing primary fruit aromas, delicious soft red berry flavours and a note of dark chocolate. Gorgeous Gamay at its best.
