    Focus 2 : Wines Region

    Beaujolais:

    This name is used mainly in the south of the region.
    99% Beaujolais produces red wines from the Gamay grape variety.
    On the palate, one often finds fruity, lively and tender aromas, one can find a great persistence in the best bottles. The first fruits (new Beaujolais) should be consumed a few months before the end of the spring following the harvest.

    Beaujolais-villages:

    It differs from Beaujolais thanks to a selection of the best vines for its elaboration. There are thirty-eight communes in the northern part of the vineyard that can use this appellation. The delimitation is made through the transition between clay-limestone soils and granitic soils. You will have the occasion to taste well structured or fruity red wines, always produced from the black gamay.
    The Beaujolais-villages are known for having a great finesse and a beautiful persistence in the mouth.

    Beaujolais and Beaujolais Villages also offer you beautiful Beaujolais white (Chardonnay) and Beaujolais rosé (Gamay Noir), as well as surprising Crémants (sparkling wine).


    The ten Beaujolais crus:

    Brouilly, Chiroubles, Chénas, Côte de Brouilly, Fleurie, Juliénas, Morgon, Moulin-à-Vent, Régnié, Saint-Amour : just 24km to find these 10 exceptional crus, all very different. The majority of these wines avoid frosts unlike the rest of the region. You can taste young, lively and fragrant wines, like much richer wines that will develop their aromas with a few more years. Those wines are made to age.
