(boh jhoe lay)—Although this region is technically part of Burgundy, it makes its own distinctly fruity wine from the Gamay grape. Beaujolais and Beaujolais Superieur come from the Southern part of the area where the soil is mainly clay and sand. These wines are fresh, fruity, and light-bodied, inexpensive and best drunk a year or two after the vintage. Beaujolais-Village wines are made in the northern part of the district, where the soil is granite-based, and are fuller and more substantial. The highest quality Beaujolais come from the north and are known as cru Beaujolais; these bottles carry only the name of the cru, and not the word Beaujolais.
