Description
  • Our Beaujolais-Villages comes from 35 selected towns within the northern part of the region and originating from granite soils which are ideally compatible with the indigenous Gamay grape. The difference between the various levels of Beaujolais - Beaujolais Nouveau, Beaujolais, Beaujolais Superieur, Beaujolais-Villages, and Cru Beaujolais - is the maximum yield, geographic area, and the ability of the wine to improve with age. Our Beaujolais-Villages is nurtured and bottled in Maison Latour's cellars at 'Clos Chameroy' on the outskirts of Beaune.

Press review
    • 2006 Beaujolais-Villages - The Edmonton Journal - Canada - November 12th 2008:Light, easy-to-drink red wine, with strawberry jam on the nose, an ample palate, well-integrated tannins and a slightly herbaceous finish. It's amazing some still rush to buy faddish, rough Beaujolais Nouveau when they can buy good wine like this. Made from Gamay grapes selected from 35 towns. Good party sipper that pairs well with fish and lighter fare.
