I've gotten into the habit of making high end kits, but then I drink them before their time. I decided to make a Bergamais kit. I substituted yeast, using CR51 (as an experiment) but since I didn't use the supplied yeast, I don't know how it affected the wine. At any rate it was delicious, and had a Gamay-like freshness, a pinkish red color, and a delicious zing. I've already decided to age the age-worthy, but to enjoy the young and brilliant. Good choice!
