Boulon Beaujolais Superieur VV 17
|Delivery time:||Same day Pickup|
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.
The Boulon Beaujolais Blanc may elicit a double-take; however, most AWM regulars are no strangers to the reds from Boulon. Our newest Gamay selection from Hugo Boulon is his Beaujolais Supérieur. It's a step up from standard-issue Beaujolais and drinks at the Village level with a lower price tag. This Beaujolais is a perfect match for your Thanksgiving table, and like Pinot Noir, it will complement the turkey and all of your sides.
