Interesting Facts
Beaujolais-Villages takes its name from a number of wine-producing villages long identified for the superior quality of their wines. In this instance, “superior” refers to greater complexity in bouquet, higher concentration, and deeper flavor. Its distinctive character sets a middle ground for Beaujolais, with its unique casual charm If one could compare a glass of joyful Beaujolais to Mozart’s Cherubino, then Beaujolais-Villages would be Figaro- more mature, worldly and self-assured. Beaujolais- Villages is that ideal, multi-purpose red wine.
