For a long time, Beaujolais was best-known for very light, very fruity red wines: Beaujolais Nouveau. Needless to say, Beaujolais is a whole lot more than that.First and foremost, Beaujolais is home to some of our favorite crisp reds on earth. The wines are tart, floral, and a bit spicy, consistently offering fantastic value for the price. Served slightly chilled, Beaujolais is reliably crowd-pleasing and exceptionally versatile with food. Beyond its refreshing reds, Beaujolais is also the source of top-class rosé and under-the-radar whites, as well as collectible, age-worthy bottlings from its 10 ‘Crus’ in the region’s north.
