Uva Non Grata Gamay 2020 75cl


Tasting Note

Bouncy, crunchy Gamay, this is an irresistible fruit bomb packed with fresh, primary fruit aromas and the delicious soft red berry flavours of gorgeous Gamay at its best.


After 10 years of Boutinot importing wines from France back into the UK, Paul Boutinot started Boutinot France in January 1990, with the first office being in the middle of the vines in Julienas – the perfect location to navigate the regions of Beaujolais and Macon. Since then, the company has since grown and has relocated to Macon. It has over 20 employees taking care of production across the whole of France. This company uses a combination of models to source their wines, from large-scale, high-quality coops to small, family growers and single domains, as well as from their own vineyards in Cairanne and Saint-Vérand. The expertise of four winemakers, including Master Blender Samantha Bailey, and a network of partner growers is drawn on to create their wines. This wine is made by Guillaume Létang.

Uva Non Grata celebrates the overlooked and the underappreciated whilst giving an individual artistic representation of its raison d’être. For centuries after being maligned, mistreated and misunderstood, Gamay was outlawed by Philip the Bold in 1395. However, some vignerons rebelled and hid forbidden Gamay vines amongst the ‘noble’ Pinot Noir.
