Martian Wine

Absolute Magnitude

2016 Gamay Noir

Banned by a Duke in Burgundy because he wanted Pinot Noir to reign supreme, he called Gamay "a bad and disloyal varietal" and demanded that it be ripped out immediately.  Lucky for us, it found a home in Beaujolais where the Crus are making beautiful age worthy wines.

Here at Martian, Gamay is one of our first of the season to harvest.  While many of our past bottlings have been in the carbonic style, like the winegrowers of beaujolais, we have come to LOVE gamay and future wines will be far more serious and elegant, showing what this "disloyal varietal" can really do.
