Oh, beautiful Beaujolais! This intriguing region, south of Burgundy, cultivates only Gamay (the vast majority of plantings) and Chardonnay grapes within 12 growing areas: 10 very special Crus plus Beaujolais and Beaujolais Villages.

It still surprises me that in my 15 months living in France, I did not travel to the Beaujolais wine region, let alone visit the city of Lyon. I must have wanted to save a few highlights for my next trip to France!?!

I selected the delicious Jean Loron ‘Domaine Des Billards’ Saint Amour 2016 – absolutely swoon-worthy.

Our facial expressions kill me!

In this episode, Cindy, Allison and I share wines from three different Crus that you will love – guaranteed! Do you love Beaujolais as much as we do? Share your favorite wine in the comments!

Maison Jean Loron

Happy Saturday.
