Grape – Gamay

Elisa Guerin
'La Vigne de Mon Pere' Moulin-à-Vent 2022

A wonderful example of what this cru can offer. Often making some of the more structured, ageworthy Beaujolais, here a balance of muscularity and elegance is on display. A wide-open aromatic profile leads to dark, inky fruits with an almost Burgundian character. Find out more.

Elisa Guerin
Beaujolais-Villages 2022

Elisa is back with the 2022 iteration of this Wayward favourite. From a hot vintage this is a deeper, riper Gamay that nonetheless retains its delicacy and verve. Dusty spices, black cherry fruits, stony minerals and elegant, fine-grained tannins. Just delicious. Find out more.

Domaine des Grottes
Brut de Cuve 2022

A red so light we almost called it a rosé. Purity of fruit is the name of the game here, hinged on the idea of travelling from tank to bottle at the precise moment that 'grape juice' becomes 'wine'. It's no doubt clear that this highly youthful style leaves us with a Gamay that is prodigiously drinkable and you'll most certainly want on ice. Find out more.

Raphaël Beysang & Émélie Hurtubise
Bunny Wine 2021 LITRE

Raphaël & Émélie love big bottles. Rarely have we drunk anything of theirs from less than a litre-sized vessel. When you taste their wine it makes so much sense! This is deepest, wildest Gamay from a parcel in Theize they have lovingly converted to organic over the years. The wine is of the raw, expressive variety and brims with vitality. Find out more.

Elisa Guerin
Chiroubles 2022

An impressive example of this elevated cru. The texture of the wine is beautifully soft and silky, with integrated, lightly gripping tannic structure. An elegant Beaujolais that bears the complexity of its old-vine origin. Find out more.

Petite Nature
Danser Sous La Pluie 2022

Given a little time to breathe on opening, this is a complex, idiosyncratic wine with lots to explore. The mouthwatering acid cuts the palate keenly, with cherry, blackcurrant and raspberry liquorice in its wake. Wild-edged and raw, there is much on display to appeal to those who appreciate the work of the likes of Domaine du Mazel and La Cave des Nomades. Find out more.

Raphaël Beysang & Émélie Hurtubise
J'aime JM 2022 LITRE

This is a blend of their own Gamay with grapes from the Alsace, this time we have Sylvaner & Pinot Blanc joining the party, with everything being macerated together in whole bunches for a week before ageing in foudre barrel. It's a luminous, lifted wine; the white grapes giving a lovely aromatic aspect floating over all the crunchy red fruits. A chiller. Find out more.

Noëlla Morantin
La Boudinerie 2020

In contrast to Noëlla's other soft, velvet-smooth reds, her delightfully crunchy Gamay maintains a certain degree of edge. More juicy, vegetal and with a degree of funkiness, once this one has had a chance to breathe in a bit of air its plush layers of black and red forest fruits really begin to show themselves. A certified lip-smacker. Find out more.

Mikaël Bouges

Mai & Kenji Hodgson
La Grande Pièce 2021

Les Paltieres 2022 LITRE

As ever, Raphaël & Émélie's Gamay walks the line between supple, smooth elegance and wild-edged earthiness. The oversized bottles make a lot of sense as the wine feels like something to slurp and glug, rather than to sip and pore over - it's nourishing, compelling stuff Find out more.

Michel Guignier
Mystère de Rosée 2021

Wow! This is one of those wines that makes a lasting impression for its pure deliciousness. What comes across most distinctively, from beneath all that bright, energetic red berry fruit, is a profoundly stony, mineral tone, as if the wine had been filtered through rock. At once easy to drink, but divertingly complex. Find out more.

Paulette’s debut cuvée from her own small parcel of 50 year-old Gamay vines, planted over sandy decomposed granite and quartz at around 500 meters in the hills outside Annonay.
