Description

“Cru Beaujolais is the Wine World’s Rising Star”
At the tail end of Burgundy—France’s revered wine region whose Côte-d'Or slopes are praised as pinot noir’s perfect fit—a different grape takes over. Here, in the Beaujolais zone, the best sites, running along the forest-topped granite hills in the area’s north, are given over to gamay—a variation more specifically named gamay noir à jus blanc. When grown in these hills and vinified with local yeasts, this thin-skinned dark grape yields complex, aromatic, and totally affordable wines. Boasting an array of peppery, dry-herb-flecked fruit notes that range from watermelon to raspberry to cherry, with robust lilac and peony aromas, Beaujolais' best wines are made from fruit grown in the area's 10 crus, or top vineyard sites. We'll taste three of the top Cru Beaujolais.
