Bottles from the Beaujolais region of France taste great chilled.


With zesty acidity, fresh fruit, and easygoing tannins, bottles from the Beaujolais region of France are among the few red wines that truly taste great chilled. How perfect for summer?

Ask your wine merchant for a bottle from the Juliénas sub-region of Beaujolais, priced around $16 to $20. Combining bright fruit flavors with spice and floral notes, these wines go especially well with grilled fish, meat, and poultry; chill and serve when you want something cool, yet substantial, in your glass.
