A regional appellation using the term ‘village’ means that the plots of vines are within the 39 Beaujolais-Villages communes within the Beaujolais vinegrowing area. This appellation covers 15,000 acres.
The wine takes its name from the historical Province of Beaujolais, a wine producing region. It is located north of Lyon, and covers parts of the north of the Rhône department of the Rhône-Alpes region and southern areas of the Saône-et-Loire department of Burgundy.
Vinification in stainless steel vats at 86°F for the semi-carbonic maceration. The wine then remains in the vats for 3 to 6 months.
Straightforward and expressive, fruity and floral.
Lively and flashy, this is a fresh, persistent wine made in the image of Bouchard Aîné & Fils using a Burgundy style which flavors structure and elegance over ethereal fruit.
