Chateau Gaillard (375ml), 2010, Touraine Gamay

Red, Old World, Biodynamic Gamay from the Loire, France

Past wine – out of stock


Gamay is the grape of Beaujolais but occurs quite frequently in the Loire river valley where it is more similar to a Bordeaux red than to Beaujolais.  This really good example is light with the nose and taste of red berries, sour cherries; very pleasant. With the right food (see our recommendation below) this wine will turn any old evening into something special.  The wine maker recommends that you serve this wine chilled to 12°.  This is also a 'low sulphur' wine with only 55mg total sulphur per litre.

The vineyard of Chateau Gaillard is located on the slopes which are on the northern bank of the Loire between Amboise and Blois.  Vincent Girault, who is the owner and winegrower since 1978, endeavours to transmit to his wines the character and the authenticity of their soil.

The Chateau Gaillard vineyard is cultivated according to biodynamic agriculture's methods in order to protect the ancestral wine quality of this vineyard. All Chateau Gaillard wines have had the Demeter eco-label since 1992 vintage.  website
