Wines of Beaujolais

Beaujolais is the last district of Burgundy. It produces one of the most famous red wine in the world. Beaujolais takes it, generally, light and fruity flavour from the Gamay grape variety. It should be tasted slightly fresh and young.

There are four categories of wines in Beaujolais :

Cru Beaujolais, in Brouilly, Côte de Brouilly, Morgon, Chénas, Chiroubles, Fleurie, Juliénas, Moulin à Vent, Régnié and Saint Amour, where the granitic soil gives one of the best Gamay.

Beaujolais in the northern part of the district where the soil is limestone.

Beaujolais Supérieur in the same part of the district but with one degree more of alcohol.

Beaujolais-Village in one of the 39 listed villages.
