For many wine lovers the name Beaujolais is nearly synonymous with plonk, which many attribute to lackisdaiscal farming, over production, sub-standard winemaking & a perception of gross manipulation in the winery.
I am one of those people who likes to dig around for wines which over deliver in quality, especially for the dollar spent. Beaujolais is one of those areas where one can still find an amazing wine with interesting-ness, delicious-ness, food friendliness & sensational gulp-ability AND still at a very reasonable price.
Thank goodness for all of the media coverage readily available on wine today, which in fact thankfully seems to be growing. I believe any kind of well presented information & exposure really does encourage more & more people to try & enjoy wines. Even the somewhat controversial, supporting numeric rating system which many now use to assess (in a report card kind of way) the wines’ quality also seems to help readers with their selection, buying & cellaring.
