I opened a red wine in Loire, Pascal Simonutti, gamay. The wine shop owner tole me this gamay is named gamay-chardonnay or something. that wasn't chardonnay, but sounds like it. It's said one of gamayT relatives. I couldn't find the detail on the net.. Anyway, this wine was gamay. taste naturally. I ate pasta with it. the pasta was Linguine piccole with clams and broccoli sauce. I added a half peace of potato because it was a leftover. the potato get the sauce little thicker. it's not bad.
