At Agamy, Gamay is king! It represents 90% of our planted areas. But he is not alone: to make our whites, 3 grape varieties come together, each offering their own unique personality.
Discover their characters.
Gamay, our king grape variety, has found in our territories a setting to develop all its facets and its intense aromatic expression. On our Beaujolais appellations, it offers crunchy, fruity and delicious aromas. In Lyonnais, it even reveals subtle spicy notes. In the Côtes du Forez, the volcanic soils give it a more full-bodied character. Gamay gives our wines a brilliant red color, with predominantly fruity aromas (raspberry, wild strawberry, blackberry, black cherry) and sometimes peppery and floral. With great amplitude, it allows us to produce wines that can be drunk all year round and on any occasion to fully enjoy their indulgence.
Our rosé wines are made from black gamay with white juice. Depending on the aromatic intensity you want to give them, they are obtained by direct pressing or after maceration of a few hours. Sometimes light and delicate, sometimes vinous and more complex, always delicious, our rosés express notes of tangy red fruits, citrus fruits, and a nice freshness. Real wines of pleasure!
Our white wines are produced from several grape varieties:
Established in our Beaujolais, Lyonnais and Forez terroirs, Chardonnay reveals all its elegance! It is at the origin of delicate wines with a beautiful aromatic intensity. It offers aromas of white fruit and citrus fruits as well as beautiful floral and mineral notes. Some wines can age for a few years in the cellar to express their complexity and intensity.
It’s been ten years since our winegrowers decided to plant Viognier on their territories. Successful bet ! At the origin of gourmet wines, Viognier flourishes fully on our land and offers our wines aromas of yellow fruits, sometimes exotic. Its sweet version evolves with notes of quince and honey.
More confidential, Aligoté offers us lively wines, with notes of crunchy white fruits, citrus fruits and white flowers. It has found its place on our Lyonnais soils!
