Decoding the Terroir of Beaujolais

Event Details

Discover the versatility of the Gamay grape, which reaches its peak expression in the terroirs of Beaujolais. Join Joe Wadsack for a masterclass on Monday 28th October 2019 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 from 2015 to 2018.

These historical vintages delivered exceptional wines in Beaujolais. The 2018 vintage gave ripe, fruity wines, with perfect balance.In 2017, volumes were smaller than usual but of fantastic quality: concentrated, structured, aromatic, with 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.

The masterclass will be presented by Joe Wadsack, resident drinks expert on ITV’s This Morning and BBC’s Food Drink. A true Beaujo fan, Joe will decode the terroirs of the region in an exciting and educational seminar. Don’t miss out!
