About This Wine
Who are we to argue with the judges of France’s annual Macon wine competition?
They awarded the 2013 Domaine du Gueret Gamay a gold medal. And after tasting the wine, it’s easy to understand why.
Located north of Lyon in eastern France, the Beaujolais region overlaps Burgundy in the north and the Rhone in the south. The picturesque vineyards run along the Saone River, where vintners have crafted deliciously supple, fruity wines since the days of ancient Rome. The region receives lots of sunshine, and has granite-based soils that lend excellent structure in the wines.
The Gamay grape is used to make all red Beaujolais wines. Only manual harvesting is allowed in the Beaujolais region. Handpicking means that before being fermented, entire bunches are sorted to remove any inferior grapes. In France, this winemaking method is specific to the Beaujolais region, and Domaine du Gueret has a particularly deft touch with Gamay.
