Gamay Teinturier de Bouze

The red grape variety originates from France. Synonyms are Gamay Bouze, Gamay de Bouze, Gamay de Teinturier Bouze, Gamay Mourot, Mouraud, Moureau, Mourot, Mourot de Russilly, Plant de Bouze, Plant Rouge de Bouze, Rouge de Bouze and Teinturier de Bouze. It was discovered in the 19th century near the commune of Bouze near Beaune in the Côte d'Or area of Burgundy. The parentage is unclear; it is either a red-fleshed mutation of the Gamay variety, or a descendant of Gamay x Teinturier du Cher. By mutation, Gamay Teinturier de Bouze gave rise to the more colourful Gamay Teinturier de Chaudenay. The early ripening vine is susceptible to botrytis, black spot disease, wood diseases and yellowing. It produces less colourful wines than its mutation and is therefore known as "semi-Teinturier". The variety is grown in Burgundy, where a total of 255 hectares of vines were reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson statistics).
