Gamaret

Gamaret shares many traits with its distant relative Pinot Noir, but has few of its frailties. It ripens early, gives high yields and is resistant to most fungal diseases. Gamaret wines typically have moderate tannins, a robust acid structure and an aroma profile of blackberries and sweet spice.

With its good complement of both acids and tannins, Gamaret can produce wines of excellent structure. Its aromatics tend towards the darker, more brooding end of the fruit spectrum, peppered with hints of savoury spice. The variety is often blended with its sibling, Garanoir, to balance these darker, more serious notes out with Gamaret's lighter, fruitier character.

Gamaret was born in 1970 at the Caudoz research centre in Pully near Lausanne in Switzerland and originally named Pully B-13 before Gamaret was chosen. Gamaret was developed mostly for cultivation in French Switzerland, and is a full sibling of Garanoir which was intended more for the German part of the country.

Gamaret was released in 1990 and has since conquered half of Switzerland. It has also appeared in France and Belgium, and might be planted in the UK soon.
