2017 Maison Bonheur Appellation Beaujolais Villages Contrôlée

The Beaujolais region of Burgundy is well known for its easygoing, medium-bodied reds made from the Gamay grape. This version shows off quintessential characteristics of the variety, featuring juicy, exuberant red fruit flavors of cherry and strawberry alongside savory notes of violet and black pepper. Enjoy this jubilant red on its own, or take advantage of its versatility and pair it with anything from poultry to pork to salmon.
