Gamay focus, 10 - Puy de Dôme Gamay 2013 from the Auvergne

puy de dome gamay

I recently wrote about the wines from Caves Saint Vernay in France’s Auvergne, a volcanic terroir in the south of the Loire. Well, next stop on my Gamay journey is the Auvergne, and their varietal Gamay. Reds here are typically a blend of Gamay and Pinot Noir, but on its own, the Gamay really shines. And it’s an incredible bargain at just £7.50, because this is proper, serious wine.

Cave Saint Vernay Puy de Dôme Gamay 2013 Auvergne, Loire, France
Fresh and pure with lovely red cherries and plums. Nice bright fruit with good acidity and a subtle peppery note. Fresh, detailed and drinkable with a nice grippy edge. This is fabulous for the price. 90/100 (£7.50 The Wine Society)
