Beaujolais Blanc: The Region's Little Kept Secret
This week we are letting you in on a little kept secret of Beaujolais. Known for primarily producing red varietals like Gamay, the region also produces delicious and refreshing whites including Chardonnay. Due to laws limiting vineyards in the region to a maximum of 15% dedicated to white varietals, the quantity of these wines are quite limited. A good reason why you don't see them very often on wine shop shelves. Best drank young, Beaujolais Blancs are light and fresh with floral and stone fruit aromas paired with citrus flavors. Be sure to try out this new arrival of Beaujolais Blanc from Pierre Dupond for a great introduction into quality white Beaujolais.
