Beaujolais

Region: France / Burgundy / Beaujolais

Fruit for Louis Jadot Beaujolais is grown in the southern part of Beaujolais. Soils are light, and allow a light, fresh expression of Gamay. Beaujolais is vinified by a method called "macération beaujolaise," or carbonic maceration. The grapes are placed in the vat in whole bunches, without crushing, and the grapes on the bottom, broken by the weight of those on the top, begin a natural fermentation. This method yields a deliciously fruity, forward wine.
