I like Gamay because it's not fussy, people and food friendly, and it holds its horses fruit and alcohol wise as wines from the Loire tend to do compared to other wine regions.
Subtle is the word.
After reading many words of praise on Noella Morantin 2008 Touraine Gamay, I will have to find it.

It is shown below at its birthplace in all its splendor as photographed by local lensman Olivier Blaise from Nemours. You can find more of his Food and Loire Wine takes on Lightstalkers.
A step up from it is 'Mon Cher' ($19-$20 range) which Jake of Cherries and Clay featured in On Joe Dressner and Noëlla Morantin (November 13) along with other Loire wines. I borrowed his snapshot of 'Mon Cher'.
Here's his take on it:
Both wines are Organic by the way.
