The fruit flavors of Beaujolais wines add a refreshing twist to any menu. In fact they're the perfect French summer wines!
Light and famously fruity, Beaujolais are at home on a fine dining menus and backyard cookouts. Famously fruity, they are easy to pair and taste delicious with many different foods. One thing that really stands out next to a chilled glass of Beaujolais, is cheese – soft cheeses especially.
Beaujolais wines are especially ideal during summer because their light flavors compliment grilled items beautifully. They don't overpower traditional summer favorites like barbeque sauce and in-season vegetables, likes sweet corn.
To begin exploring the pairing, serve something simple. Sliced baguette with our soft, ultra-creamy Brie Cheese is a fantastic appetizer or snack. The sweet fruit notes of any Beaujolais will be a delicious accompaniment. Add sweet preserves, grapes and nuts to the mix to jazz up the flavor further.
If you are a true wine aficionado, look for Moulin-à-Vent, a Beaujolais cru wine with aromas of iris, spice and ripe fruit.
