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)

  1. Dear Jamie,

    We are a new estate (yet created by the monks) in Fleurie and Saint Amour and I would be delighted to introduce to you all the work we have done since the acquisition of the winery as well as our vintage 2014, and our vision of the region and gamay. I look forward to hearing from you in due course. ABV
