Beaujolais

Beaujolais, in part because of the popularity of Beaujolais Nouveau, is almost a synonym for light, fruity, easy-drinking wines. Beaujolais is a historical province and wine-producing region in France. It is located north of Lyon, and covers parts of the north of the Rhône and parts of the south of Burgundy. Its main production is red wines made from gamay, which has relatively light tannins and an expansive fruity character. Small amounts of Beaujolais Blanc, from chardonnay, are also produced. The region also offers more serious, ageworthy wines, from the Beaujolais Crus (Brouilly, Côtes-de-Brouilly, Chénas, Juliénas, Régnié, Fleurie, Chiroubles, Moulin-à-Vent, Saint-Amour, Morgon) which have become more popular in recent years.
