Beaujolais

Beaujolais is a wine region in France known for its red wines, mainly made from the Gamay grape. The region is famous for its vibrant, fruity wines and the unique vinification method called "carbonic maceration," which results in wines with bright fruit aromas and soft tannins. Beaujolais is divided into several appellations, the most important and prestigious of which are the ten crus. Below is a description of the Beaujolais wines, each with its own cru:

Brouilly: Located in the south of Beaujolais, Brouilly is the largest cru. The wines are often fruity, lively and have a beautiful structure.

Chénas: Chénas is the smallest cru and is known for its wines with a robust character and aromas of red fruit and flowers.

Chiroubles: Located on the highest slopes, Chiroubles produces light and elegant wines with floral notes and fresh fruitiness.

Côte de Brouilly: Adjacent to Brouilly, on the hills of Mont Brouilly, Côte de Brouilly offers wines with depth, concentration and expressive fruit aromas.
