Curious about Beaujolais?

Beaujolais is a wine region located in eastern France, north of Lyon, and south of Burgundy. It is known for producing light-bodied, fruity red wines made from the Gamay grape variety.  The Gamay grapes grown in Beaujolais are typically harvested early to preserve their acidity and fresh, fruity flavors. The wines are fermented using a winemaking technique called carbonic maceration, in which whole clusters of grapes are placed in a tank and fermented with carbon dioxide. This process results in wines that are light in tannins, with flavors of fresh red fruits like cherry, raspberry, and strawberry.  Beaujolais wines are often served slightly chilled and are a great choice for summertime drinking or as an accompaniment to lighter dishes like charcuterie, salads, and grilled meats. They are generally meant to be consumed young, within a year or two of the vintage date, although the wines from the cru areas can age for a few years and develop more complexity.
