French Gamay is a red wine grape variety that’s most famously grown in the Beaujolais region of France. Known for its bright, juicy fruit character, Gamay wines are typically light to medium-bodied, with high acidity and low tannins. These wines often showcase flavours of red fruit like raspberry, red cherry, and strawberry, often with notes of pepper, earth, or fresh violets. Beaujolais Nouveau, released on the third Thursday of November every year, is a famous example of young, fruity Gamay. If you enjoy red wines that are light, fresh, and fruit-forward, wines made from French Gamay could be a great choice for you.
