One can easily compare Chiroubles to a superb model elegantly dressed in bright red silk. In taste, it proves to be the most ethereal of Beaujolais wines, all the while proudly bearing the stamp of delectable red berries.

Those are usually the Cru Beaujolais and are...Read More About Beaujolais

are so wholly intertwined with one another. After being universally rejected by the rest of
Burgundy in the
14th century, Gamay found its niche a bit further south, in Beaujolais. Beyond that part of France, Gamay
