2020 Maison Piron Coq Leon

$28.00

Place: Beaujolais, France

Variety: Gamay, Gamaret

Farming: Sustainable

This is 95% gamay with 5% gamaret, a little-known variety created in the 1990s by crossing gamay with the German grape reichensteiner (itself a hybrid grape).

Despite attempts at being authorised for Beaujolais production, the grape never got the tick. However, there are still gamaret vines around the region, growing in obscure villages in and, occasionally, being blended with gamay to make a plumper and darker wine destined for bistro benches. This is one of those wines!
