Beaujolais is an important wine region in eastern France, famous for its vibrant, fruity red wines made from the Gamay grape. It is located to the south of Burgundy, of which it is sometimes considered to be a part, despite being within the Rhone administrative region.
Beaujolais is one of the few regions in the world to be so focused on a single grape variety (Gamay). Pinot Noir is also used in small quantities in red and rosé wines. Although best known for its red wines, the region also produces white Beaujolais Blanc, from Chardonnay and Aligote.
There are several forms of red Beaujolais wines: standard Beaujolais (including Beaujolais Superieur), Beaujolais Villages, and the characterful, youthful Beaujolais Nouveau. The region's highest-quality wines are those of the ten Beaujolais 'crus' – ten vineyard areas long recognized as the finest in the area. Each of these ten (Brouilly, Chenas, Chiroubles, Cote de Brouilly, Fleurie, Julienas, Morgon, Moulin-a-Vent, Regnie and Saint-Amour) has its own appellation title.
