Beaujolais

Look beyond Beaujolais Nouveau, and the more commercial  wines made by the regions largest co-operatives, to the Cru villages of Beaujolais and you'll find some of France's most distinctive, characterful and affordable red wines, and the very best examples of the perennially-underrated Gamay grape. Each Cru has its own personality and style, from the very lightest, violet-scented wines of Chiroubles, to floral, elegant, silky Fleurie and the more powerful, concentrated and age-worthy wines of Morgon and Moulin-a-Vent.
