BLANC DE GAMAY

This is a rare wine, difficult to produce. Made from the grape variety Gamay Noir à jus blanc (Black Gamay with white juice), it must be harvested with utmost precaution. The grapes are handpicked in small cases and immediately pressed to prevent the skins from colouring the juice. A truly original and exceptional white wine with great personality.
