Wine Wisdoms #6: Beaujolais Basics

Beaujolais Nouveau

Beaujolais, though technically considered part of Burgundy, produces more wine than the rest of the entire Burgundy region. Almost all of that wine is red from the Gamay grape. Aside from the individual Village “Cru” Beaujolais which can be aged 3-5 years, Beaujolais-Village is the highest quality wine produced there and is made to be drunk within 2-3 years. And of course every November Beaujolais Nouveau is produced from the current vintage crop.
