Gamayzing: Beaujolais Cru Wines

Our Virtual Tasting on Gamay Noir at Its Apex: For Paying Subscribers Only

< 1 min read

On March 19, 2022, subscribers to Opening a Bottle joined Editor-in-Chief Kevin Day for a seminar and discussion on the wines of the Cru Beaujolais. Kevin covered the history, terroir and winemaking methods of the region, focusing on the 10 protected appellations of origin within the granite mountains of Beaujolais: Morgon, Moulin-à-Vent, Fleurie, Juliénas, Côte de Brouilly, Brouilly, Régnié, Chénas, Saint-Amour and Chiroubles. We also discussed how these wines differ from Beaujolais, Beaujolais Nouveau and Beaujolais Villages categories.

The seminar also covered enjoying and aging these wines as well as a few travel tips for exploring the region.
