“Friandise” Anjou Gamay
“Friandise” Anjou Gamay from Domaine des Forges
Location : Gamay flourishes on the hillsides of Saint-Aubin-de-Luigné to produce fresh, lively and
very aromatic wines.
Grape variety : Red Gamay with white juice.
Soil : Altered sandstone shale to sandstone, with psammite in places and coal veins in others, with a silty, clay, sandy texture. This soil reduces vigour and produces early grapes with excellent maturity.
Manual harvesting. Winemaking: Semi-carbonic maceration, fermentation and ageing in a temperature-controlled tank.
Tasting : This wine has a light and lively flavour, very pleasant in summer when drunk young. The nose has an intense bouquet. In the mouth, the wine has few tannins. It has a velvety character, both rounded and smooth.
Serve cool at 12 to 14°C.
Pairing with food : As well as fish, this wine is the perfect accompaniment for cold buffets and white meats, grilled meats, quiches, savoury tarts and pastries.
Keeping qualities : Keep for 2 to 3 years.
