The wines of Beaujolais, especially from the ten crus, can be exceptionally mineral-driven, and showcase the versatility of the region's signature grape, Gamay. While the region is typically believed to have only granite soils, the crus located in northern Beaujolais are, in reality, quite diverse. This selection of Morgon, Moulin-à-Vent and Juliénas caps at $25 a bottle. Get the scores and tasting notes!
