Shop for Wines from Beaujolais

Among the red French wines classified as Burgundy, we usually think of them as being made only from Pinot Noir. However, there is a technically a Burgundy wine made solely from the red grape varietal called Gamay. Gamay, or as it is known locally in “Gamay Noir à Jus Blanc”, accounts for about 98 percent of Beaujolais wine production.

The Beaujolais wine region is a French “appellation d'origine controlee” (or AOC) located in eastern France just north of the city of Lyon. There are ten areas known as “crus” in the region where the best Beaujolais wines are produced. They are named in alphabetical order: Brouilly, Chénas, Chiroubles, Cote de Brouilly, Fleurie, Juliénas, Morgon, Moulin à Vent, Régnié and Saint Amour.

The two larger main regional appellations, called simply Beaujolais and Beaujolais-Villages, account for most of the Beaujolais wine production of the region. Up to one-third of the product made in these two appellations is sold as Beaujolais Nouveau wine which is released to the public on the third Thursday in November every year as the first wine of the vintage.

White wines produced in Beaujolais are called “Beaujolais Blanc” and are usually made from the Chardonnay grape. In rare instances rosé wine is also produced from Gamay grapes.

  1. Domaine de la Madone Beaujolais-Villages Le Perréon

    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#52832

    RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 29th May 2020
    Inviting aromas of black cherries, blueberries and licorice introduce the 2019 Beaujolais-Villages Le Perréon, a medium to full-bodied, fleshy wine with a deep core of succulent fruit framed by powdery tannins and lively acids. As usual, this flavorful, beautifully made red from the Bererd brothers belongs on any short list of France’s best-value bistrot wines.

  2. Jean-Marc Burgaud Morgon Côte du Py

    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#53964

    RP9494 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 29th May 2020
    The 2019 Morgon Côte du Py has turned out beautifully, delivering an inviting nose of smoky black cherries, cassis and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, bright and lively, it’s deep and concentrated, with a fleshy core of fruit underpinned by tangy acids. This is another of Burgaud’s real successes this year.
    VN9494 pts. - Vinous - Aug 2021
    The 2019 Morgon Côte du Py, bottled in July 2020 after aging in concrete, has an airy, much more floral bouquet than the Grand Cras, pressed iris petals and potpourri emerging with time. The medium-bodied palate delivers fine, edgy tannins, just the tight amount of bitterness and a cohesive, pure and peppery finish that lingers long in the mouth. Superb.

    2020 / 750 ml. | Item#55975

    RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 19th Aug 2021
    The 2020 Côte de Brouilly is already very expressive, bursting with aromas of ripe berry fruit, plums and cherries mingled with hints of raw cocoa and spices. Medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, it’s rich and fleshy, with powdery tannins, lively acids and a sapid finish. In style, this is more muscular than the more elegant 2019, but both represent benchmarks for Beaujolais in their respective vintages.

    2020 / 750 ml. | Item#59709

    VN8989 pts. - Vinous - Aug 2021
    Saturated violet. Lively and focused on the nose, displaying fresh red and blue fruit scents sharpened by a peppery nuance. Juicy and lithe on the palate, offering tangy red currant and bitter cherry flavors; an earthy licorice note builds on the back half. Subtly gripping tannins firm a nicely persistent finish that echoes the peppery quality.

  5. Julien Sunier Régnié

    2017 / 750 ml. | Item#48953

    RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 22nd Sep 2018
    The 2017 Régnié burst from the glass with aromas of red fruit compote, strawberries and flowers. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, ample and satiny, with a textural attack, lovely depth at the core and a layered, multifaceted profile. At 13.5% natural alcohol, it’s the ripest of Sunier’s 2017s, but it’s beautifully balanced.
    VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Oct 2019
    Shimmering red. Highly expressive red berry, exotic spice and floral aromas are complemented by subtle hints of smoky minerals and rhubarb. Appealingly sweet cherry and raspberry flavors show vibrant, juicy character, sharp precision and spicy lift. Finishes very long and sappy, repeating the floral note and hanging on with strong, mineral persistence.

  8. Louis Claude Desvignes Morgon Javernières

    2020 / 750 ml. | Item#56058

    RP94+94+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 19th Aug 2021
    The 2020 Morgon Côte du Py Javernières is brilliant, unwinding in the glass with aromas of wild berries, spices, rose petals, loamy soil and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, with impressive reserves of ripe tannin and sapid fruit, it’s seamless and lively, concluding with a long, resonant finish. As ever, this is built to age, and it will reward patience, even if its youthful charms are considerable.

    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#51580

    RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Aug 2019
    Aromas of smoky berry fruit, cassis, spices and candied peel introduce the 2018 Côte de Brouilly Cuvée Melanie, a medium to full-bodied, succulent and fleshy wine that’s layered and incisive, remaining fresh and lively despite its impressive mass and volume. Thanks to its perfectly mature tannins, this is unusually approachable out of the gates.

  10. Daniel Bouland Morgon Vieilles Vignes Corcelette

    Foudre No. 5
    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#53574

    RP9494 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 29th May 2020
    The 2019 Morgon Corcelette Vieilles Vignes Cailloux is once again quite structured this year, though it’s not as brooding and muscular as its 2018 counterpart. Revealing aromas of raspberries, cherries, burning embers and sweet soil tones, it’s medium to full-bodied, with a deep core of fruit, lively acids and a chassis of fine but abundant tannins.
    VN9494 pts. - Vinous - Aug 2021
    Bright-rimmed ruby. An expressive, spice-accented bouquet evokes fresh red and blue fruits and potpourri, and a mineral element builds in the glass. Bright, chewy and appealingly sweet, offering concentrated black raspberry, cherry cola and boysenberry flavors that tighten up with air. Shows impressive heft, but comes off lithe. Closes gently tannic, penetrating and wonderfully long, leaving resonating floral and spice notes behind.

    2020 / 750 ml. | Item#55788

    RP93+93+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 19th Aug 2021
    Richer and more structured than the regular bottling, Coudert’s 2020 Fleurie Cuvée Tardive delivers notes of cherries, mulberries, licorice and spices complemented by pretty hints of peony. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and concentrated, it’s layered and seamless, with a deep core of fruit and rich, powdery tannins. Despite its broad shoulders, it remains energetic.

    RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 6th May 2021
    The 2019 Juliénas Vieilles Vignes is lovely, bursting with aromas of juicy cherries, sweet berry fruit and peonies. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, its powdery tannins cloaked in succulent fruit, it’s a boisterous wine that gets my nod as one of Briday’s finest this year.

    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#52783

    RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Aug 2019
    Aromas of rose petals, raspberries, cherries and licorice introduce the 2018 Morgon Grands Cras, another superb wine from Burgaud that’s medium to full-bodied, layered and enveloping, with a fleshy core, ripe acids and a long finish. If anything, this is even more charming than Les Charmes this year. They make a formidable — and keenly-priced — duo that readers will enjoy comparing.
