Is it the World's most underappreciated wine?
There has been a revolution here over the past 25 years. The days of grapey, bubble-gummy, overly jammy wines are long gone. The wines now exhibit charm, elegance, food friendliness, and yes, age worthiness. Delicious all year long, they are especially good in warm weather because they can be lightly chilled without damage.
As you climb the quality ladder from Beaujolais to Beaujolais-Villages to the various Grand Crus, you will be increasingly rewarded by the complexity and pedigree of the wines.
