French - Beaujolais Guide

[boh-zhuh-LAY] The Beaujolais area, located in the southern part of France's Burgundy region, is different from most of Burgundy because of its focus on the Gamay grape for its red wines, instead of Pinot Noir. Beaujolais winemakers make light red wines with intense color, a fresh fruity flavor, and low tannins-in short, a wine that can be drunk early.

Did you know that Dom Perignon was a Benedictine monk and cellar master at the abbey of Hautvillers in Épernay in the late 1600's?
