We've always been particularly fond of Gamay, especially Gamay from the Beaujolais region. Gamay grown here produces wonderfully fresh wines, beautifully lifted, and redolent of bright, vibrant red fruits. Along with Pinot Noir, Gamay is an excellent choice for the Thanksgiving table.
Driving south from Burgundy, as you enter Beaujolais, you’ll notice the landscape gradually shifts to more verdant, gently rolling hills. The red grape of choice also changes — from Pinot Noir in Burgundy to Gamay in Beaujolais.
The village of Corcelles-en-Beaujolais is a 30-minute drive south of the Mâcon and has been the Boulon family’s home since the 1850s. Hugo and Ludvine Boulon are the seventh generation of the family to run the estate’s holdings in the Beaujolais Cru villages of Morgon, Brouilly and Moulin à Vent.
In Beaujolais, Gamay is king, and only a minuscule amount of production is devoted to white wines. The whites made here are usually 100% Chardonnay, with small amounts of Aligote occasionally sneaking into the blend.
Beaujolais is the southern neighbor of Burgundy, so if you're beginning to think Beaujolais Blanc may resemble White Burgundy from the Mâcon, you're thinking correctly. The Beaujolais Blanc from the Boulon family is indeed Mâcon-like and will thrill any White Burgundy lover with the rich balance of fruit and minerality.
