Product Description:

"100% Gamay de Bouze, an ancient varietal planted widely in the Cher Valley traditionally until 1970s. It most likely came from the village of Bouze, in Burgundy. It is Gamay with red juice, while classic Gamay from Beaujolais and Touraine has white juice. Wines made from Gamay de Bouze are usually rustic but inviting, because of its rich and ample style." -Winery

"Henry Marionnet at Domaine de la Charmoise makes not only a very good Gamay Noir but also one of the rare varietal examples of Gamay Teinturier de Bouze, under the brand name Les Cepages Oublies, or the forgotten vines. He notes that the wine has predominantly red-fruit flavours and tends to be more tannic than Gamay Noir à Jus Blanc, which is why he vinifies it using carbonic maceration." -Wine Grapes, by Jancis Robinson, Julia Harding, and Jose Vouillamoz
