Have you seen the “Beaujolais Premier Cru”?

Yes, maybe we will have Beaujolais Premier Cru in less than ten years. Beaujolais continues its struggle to improve its image and to play in the higher leagues. Four years ago it began to analyse its vineyards to find the best plots. To add premier cru vineyards to the 12 Beaujolais appellations will help consumers find their way but the idea is also to make it possible to increase the average price of Beaujolais wine and to show that Beaujolais wine can age.

Beaujolais will use the same principle as in Burgundy. Vineyards that have the potential to produce extraordinary grapes will be identified and classified. A good guess is that Côte de Py in Morgon is a future Premier Cru.
