French - Beaujolais Guide

Sorted by score | Re-sort by price

[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.

Clinking Glasses Before Tasting Wine: Originates from medieval times. Milk was often spoiled, water was often polluted. Wine was usually safe. The host would drink the wine first and then clink glasses with guests to show the wine was good and safe for drinking.
