Although Beaujolais is part of "Greater Burgundy", it differs from Burgundy in many respects. Out of the 35,000 hectares of gamay planted throughout the world, 22,000 hectares are in the Beaujolais area, spread over 38 villages.

"Drouhin’s Beaujolais is a persol favourite of mine. Every year it’s a lovely, easy drinking combition of bright purple/dark red colour, intense fresh cut summer berries and violets on the nose, with silky smooth fruit flavours domiting on the palate.

Winery Tasting Notes
It has a lovely raspberry colour and a brilliant hue.
The nose is both refined and intense, with notes of violet, peony and red fruit syrup.
As you drink it, it feels fresh and silky. Both freshness and fruit remain for quite a long time on the palate
A truly convivial wine. Owing to the careful blending of various terroirs, the result is a wine of great charm.
