Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

Beaujolais wines are fabulous with chicken, veal, roast pork, sausages, terrines and hot hors d'œuvre, cheeses and mushroom-based vegetarian dishes. They can be served with a light chill, while their low tannin level makes them a good choice for party wines.

Learn About Domaine de Colette

Domaine de Colette is in the small village of Lantignié, regarded as the top village in the cru, and is owned by Jacky and Evelyne Gauthier. It is less than 1 km from the border of Morgon.
