Region: Chiroubles, Beaujolais
Notes from the Importer: Gamaret is an hybrid grape a cross of Gamay and Reichensteiner which is more often found in Switzerland and recently (2008) allowed to be cultivated in France too. In this particular case, the fruit comes from a vineyard in Chiroubles. The light colour, almost resembling a rosé is obtained by pressing the grapes in a slow, 8-hour press cycle. A different interpretation from the usual heavier and grippier examples of this variety.
