Exploring beaujolais wines across the years & appellations
6th November 2018

Discover the versatility of the Gamay grape, which reaches its peak expression in the terroirs of Beaujolais.

Join Jamie Goode for a masterclass on Tuesday 6 November 2018 at 3PM

Nestled between Burgundy to the North and The Rhône to the South, Beaujolais is home to 12 appellations, including Beaujolais, Beaujolais Villages, and the 10 Crus. Go back in time and travel through the region with wines from several appellations and outstanding vintages, including 2015, 2016 and 2017.

These historical vintages delivered exceptional wines in Beaujolais. In 2017, volumes were smaller than usual but of fantastic quality: concentrated, structured, aromatic, with good balance and refreshing acidity. In 2016, a hot year in Beaujolais, wines were fruity, fresh and round, with supple and silky tannins. In 2015, they were generous, smooth, complex, rich yet perfectly balanced, with great ageing potential.

From the one grape, Gamay, is born a whole range of wines able to satisfy any consumer’s taste preference for all seasons and any occasion. This masterclass is a must for anyone willing to rediscover Beaujolais, and interested in offering premium wines from France, which are as friendly as they are accessible.

The masterclass will be presented by a leading figure in the UK wine trade, Jamie Goode. Jamie is a published author, wine columnist for The Sunday Express and founder of the acclaimed blog Wine Anorak. A lover of Beaujolais, Jamie has been sharing his excitement about the diversity of Beaujolais wines throughout the UK.
