The Beaujolais Pairing demonstrates the step up in quality the Gamay grape is capable of from a Village Beaujolais to a Cru Beaujolais (one of 10 classified communes). With this Pairing we want to dispel the myth that Beaujolais is a low quality product available seasonally around Thanksgiving (Beaujolais Nouveau, just say No).
This Pairing showcases the qualitative differences between a good quality village level Beaujolais and an exceptional quality classified Cru Beaujolais wine side-by-side.
This Pairing includes the following wines:
Wine 1: Village Level Beaujolais is filled with flavors of cranberries, Rainier cherries, alpine strawberries, granite, red carnations and star anise with a silky texture.
Wine 2: Cru Level Beaujolais offers a much more complex wine with layers of pomegranate, ripe raspberries, cranberries, lingonberries, cured meats, allspice, toasted cinnamon and smoked sausage.
