The Crus of Beaujolais

The Best Kept Secret of French Wines

The region of Beaujolais has always been considered part of greater Burgundy, often regelated to playing second fiddle to its sister to the north and pinot noir for centuries. In the late twentieth century, a group of winemakers reacted to the over-manipulation in the cellar and breathed new life into the region. They sang the praises of Beaujolais’ Crus and single vineyards, as well as the great potential of gamay, and forged a lasting impression on natural winemaking. Now, especially for those in the industry and in-the-know, Beaujolais Cru wine is easily still the somm’s choice for value and quality.

This November 10th, Anfora’s Kristin Ma will be revisiting the natural traditions of these hailed winemakers and introducing you to Beaujolais’ younger generation of producers who now carry the torch of producing excellent, natural renditions of Beaujolais Cru. You will have the opportunity to taste wines from each of the 10 Crus, showcasing the personality and complexity of each.
