Located in southern Burgundy, the Beaujolais appellation area is spread across 38 communes and 2 administrative "departments": Rhône and Saône-et-Loire. “Beaujolais-Villages” first attained its glory and reputation Lyon’s "bouchons" (small family-run restaurants) and is a perfect wine for convivial meals and appetizing dishes. The majority of the Beaujolais-Villages appellation is located in the Vauxonne and Ardie?res valleys and represents 25% of the Beaujolais region’s total production. Taking into account the local topography, the vines here are under the influence of several microclimates, which enhances the characteristics of the wines.
This Beaujolais-Villages is redolent of wild fruit (strawberry and blackberry) and floral aromas (rose, lily of the valley). The palate is silky, soft and full-flavoured.
Enjoy this wine with cold cuts, red meats, or barbecued meats.
