For our purposes, all Beaujolais red wines are produced by the Gamay grape which is genetically similar to Pinot Noir but ripens even earlier and therefore does well in cooler climates. I judge a good Beaujolais by how much you can drink and still feel human the next day.
The Cuvée Centenaire displays ripe soft tannins which enhance its enjoyability.
Just another reason why France wouldn't be quite France if the region of Beaujolais did not exist.
Great with grilled foods on any day of the year.
