Gamay

Gamay

Like Chardonnay and Aligoté, Gamay descends from Pinot Noir. More commonly known as "Gamay Noir à Jus Blanc", it is made from a blend of Gouais Blanc (a grape variety that has now disappeared) and Pinot Noir.
It is grown in the south of Bourgogne and in Beaujolais, where it thrives in the region's granite and clay soil.
Almost 70% of the 36,000 hectares of Gamay Noir à Jus Blanc grown across the world comes from vineyards in the Beaujolais region.
