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


Domaine Gaget Morgon Cote du Py 2011
91  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 91"I was unfamiliar with the small domaine of Maurice and son Mikael Gaget, but a sample of their 2011 Morgon Cote de Py – bottled late last summer after a stay in foudre – was fine indeed. Ripe fresh Morello cherry tinged with its pits, rosemary and fennel is paralleled on the nose

Wine Advocate 90"The 2010 Chenas Quartz Domaine Piron & Lameloise – bottled for one week when I tasted it – reflects the quartzite-rich soil in which it grows in mouthwatering salinity and an active sense of mineral impingement. Like the corresponding Morgon Cote de Py, 40% of this matured in

Marcel LaPierre Raisins Gaulois 2012
"This cuvee takes the Vin de France appellation, because the Beaujolais governing body decided to do away with the Vin de Pays designation in Beaujolais, leaving only the appellations and Vin de France. The wine is still almost all from the cru of Morgon, with a little bit of A.O.C. Beaujolais as

"A careful selection of various "terroirs" and micro-climates, all contributing to make this wine synonymous with charm and conviviality. It has a bright purple colour, a very intense nose, reminiscent of violets, peonies and red berries. On the palate, it has a silky smoothness, and its delicious
