Jean-Marc Burgaud, Beaujolais Villages


Coming from a winemaking family, it was almost inevitable that Jean-Marc would set up his own estate, which he did in 1989 with his wife Christine. Their 19 hectares are divided between Morgon (13 hectares), Régnié (one hectare) and Beaujolais Villages (five hectares) and Jean-Marc believes that this is the maximum area he can cultivate while still producing the quality he is after.

We fear that there may be a stigma attached to Beaujolais. It seems that Beaujolais Noveau - the jammy, candied, quickly assembled wine has come to represent the entire category for some folks. This dry, pure and well -structured red from Jean-Marc Burgaud should set the record straight. This is real Beaujolais and it deserves your attention!

Tasting Note:
This wine has a superb structure, with crunchy red fruit flavours, fine tannins and excellent acidity lifting the finish.
