Calgary Herald New Condos - - Weekend Life -

Gamay re­mains one of the most un­der­rated red grapes on the planet, partly be­cause its good name has been be­smirched by that wretched cre­ation known as Beau­jo­lais Nou­veau. Good Gamay — and the vast ma­jor­ity of Gamay comes from France’s Beau­jo­lais re­gion — of­fers a flavour pro­file not un­like what you will en­counter in the neigh­bour­ing Bur­gundy re­gion, and at a frac­tion of those at­mo­spheric prices. The gran­ite-based soils of Beau­jo­lais con­trib­ute a nice core of min­er­als to this wine along­side the clas­sic red-berry fruits and a hint of spice. Chill it down and serve it with flank steak or spice-rubbed tri-tip.
