Oh, Beaujolais. So many opinions yet so little understood. It may have been subject to (or victim of?) one of the greatest wine marketing campaigns of all time - the Beaujolais Nouveau race - but this has narrowed people's perceptions of a region that despite being dominated by one grape variety is a source of incredible diversity across its ten crus. Ancient Gamay may have been outlawed by the Duke of Burgundy in 1395 but we believe Philippe was being an arse. It was and remains one of the world's greatest grapes.
