Beaujolais-Villages takes its name from a certain number of wine-making villages in the Beaujolais production area – 38 to be precise – that have long stood out for the superior quality of their wines. By “superior” is meant greater aromatic complexity, greater concentration and greater reliability. This delicious red wine marks a sort of transition between “plain” Beaujolais with its spontaneous character and the ten prestigious “crus” further north, if you can compare a charming Beaujolais wine the the Cherub in Mozarts “Marriage of Figaro”. Beaujolais-Villages would be Figaro, more mature and experienced, more sure of himself. More than any other, it is a wine that is enjoyed in happy homes.
An intense, brilliant cherry colour with purplish tints. Complex rose with red and black berry aromas (raspberries, redcurrants, blackcurrants). A smooth wine with fine tannins, harmonious and complete.
