Tasting notes on the wine: 

Showcasing the region’s terroir and gamay’s luscious, gem- like fruit tones,  La Gourde à Gamay is light- bodied, ready for a slight chill in the fridge or on ice, and more than happy to be on the same table as a roast chicken with drippings-covered potatoes and a crisp green salad. — Max & Cody

About the winemaker: 

You can’t talk about bistro wine without mentioning Beaujolais, period. Directly south of Burgundy (while they are technically in the same 'administrative region,' it is not Burgundy), Beaujolais is the land of fruit-forward, brambly wine made from gamay. When one speaks about easy- drinking reds, 9 times out of 10, they have a bottle of Bojo in mind. Laura Lardy, a fourth-generation Beaujolais winemaker, rents organic vineyards from her dad, who’s nice enough to have selected the ones with significantly older vines than other parts. — Max & Cody
