The great red wines

Red wines with multiple facets

What characterizes Beaujolais is the diversity of its terroirs and the range of its wines. The quality of its juices can be compared to its Burgundian neighbors. The crus Chiroubles, Fleurie and Saint-Amour reveal a greedy and fruity structure. Chénas, Morgon, Moulin-à-Vent, are, as for them, marked by aromas of very ripe fruits in their youth. After a few years of ageing, they develop more spicy and woody notes. The crus Brouilly, Côte de Brouilly, Juliénas and Régnié are characterized by a beautiful structure and a nice harmony.
