Wine of the week: Fall in Burgundy
As we're moving into the beautiful season of autumn, we tend to leave cravings for white and rosé wines back in the summer months. And fall is a great time of the year to explore lighter reds. Our wine of the week is from the Beaujolais area.
Beaujolais is the southern most appellation in the greater Burgundy region. They generally make lighter red wines from the Gamay grape. There are ten Beaujolais crus and they differ a lot in character. There is also something called Beaujolais-Villages. These are simpler wines, ment to be consumed young. And it's here you can find the real bargains. That goes for our wine of the week.
