Beaujolais

Beaujolais is a French Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) wine generally made of the Gamay grape which has a thin skin and is low in tannins. Like most AOC wines they are not labeled varietally. Beaujolais tends to be a very light-bodied red wine, with relatively high amounts of acidity. ~wikipedia
