Gamay de Chaudenay
It is a mutation observed by JM Bidault de Chaudenay - Saône et Loire - in 1832 on a Gamay de Bouze strain.
Like other Gamay teinturier, it also served at a time to color the wine missing color.
It is part of the vine appellations Coteaux d'Ancenis et Touraine.
It gives a less colored wine than the one produced by the Gamay Fréaux but with better qualities.
