Wine Background

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 wines mark a sort of transition between `plain` Beaujolais with its spontaneous character and the ten prestigious `crus` further north. If we can compare a charming Beaujolais wine with the Cherub in Mozart's `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.
