Video : Beaujolais white and rosés wines


Beaujolais is also about whites and rosés... Today’s Beaujolais Moment is about these unusual colours.

In Beaujolais and Beaujolais Villages to the south of the winegrowing area, they make white and rosé wines. It’s only 4% of total Beaujolais wine production. So they’re harder to find than the reds.

Beaujolais whites are a rare find. There are fewer bottles, and different production techniques. The Chardonnay variety is what makes them different.

Beaujolais whites are gold in colour, with white and citrus fruit aromas. Beaujolais Villages whites have floral
and mineral notes.

Beaujolais and Beaujolais Villages rosés are light pink with fruity notes.

Fresh and pleasant to drink all year round. Best drunk young, some Beaujolais Villages whites can be kept.

Don’t miss out on the rosé primeur wines either.

  • The four seasons of the vine

    The quality of any wine originates with the vine. That’s why winegrowers take such good care of their vines throughout the year with different jobs that need to be done in each of the 4 seasons. It’s like a fascinating dance choreographed by the winegrower.
