Gamay Noir/Beaujolias Nouveau

Gamay Noir/Beaujolias Nouveau

Overall Impression
Wines made with the Gamay Noir grape tend to be fairly light on the palate and fairly pale in color with a bluer tint than most noble reds. This variety produces relatively low sugar levels and tends to be fermented rapidly and served very quickly (Beaujolais Nouveau). Carbonic maceration is typically practiced with this variety which produces lively fresh fruit aromatics and flavors. Gamay Noir produces fairly high levels of acid.
