Beaujolais is a French Appellation d'Origine ContrÃ´lÃ©e (AOC) wine generally made of the Gamay grape which has a thin skin and is low in tannins. Like most AOC wines they are not labeled varietally. Whites from the region, which make up only 1% of its production, are made mostly with Chardonnay grapes though AligotÃ© is also permitted until 2024(on condition the vines were planted before 2004). Beaujolais tends to be a very light-bodied red wine, with relatively high amounts of acidity. In some vintages, Beaujolais produces more wine than the Burgundy wine regions of Chablis, CÃ´te d'Or, CÃ´te Chalonnaise and MÃ¢connais put together.
