Beaujolais Villages

Beaujolais Villages is a distinct step up in quality from generic Beaujolais. This appellation, encompassing 39 villages, sees the terrain change from the more southerly reaches of Beaujolais. These wines themselves are a bit fuller and richer than those from the broader Beaujolais appellation. These are still fruity wines, and are soft, with bright acidity, but they tend to have more complex flavor profiles, adding notes of soil and herbs to the appealing red fruit that is so characteristic of Gamay.
