Wine 101 - Beaujolais Beaujolais: it’s the pork of Burgundy! Often referred to as the other red wine of Burgundy, in addition to the great Pinot Noirs of the region, the Gamay of Beaujolais has its own unique character and special appeal.

Light-bodied and elegant like Burgundy, and at its best sharing nothing with most Beaujolais Nouveau, Beaujolais reveals a melding of fruit and earth that is increasingly rare in today’s world, and is well worth exploring. Particularly when you take a look at the prices. Even though great Beaujolais has become more expensive of late, you can still score killer bottles for less than $30, sometimes much less!
