Beaujolais

Beaujolais is a light, fruity red wine which is (usually) meant to be drunk young.  Beaujolais Nouveau is an especially light variant released to market very quickly after harvest.  Beaujolais Villages is a Beaujolais made from grapes from a single village.  Beaujolais tends to be light, refreshing, high in acid, low in tannin and have a strawberry flavor.


Enjoy Beaujolais With:


Beaujolais’ light flavor makes it a cross-over wine that is often treated as if it were a white wine when pairing with food.  It tends to do best with foods that would normally take a white wine, but are too sweet or spicy.  Good examples are simple, sweet pork or spicy, full-flavored poultry dishes.  If you’re considering a Beaujolais, you may also want to check out Barbera, its fuller-bodied counterpart from Italy.
