The Southern most part of Greater Burgundy where the Gamay grape predominates. Generally there are three levels of quality - the Crus (Brouilly, Fleurie, Morgon, Moulin a Vent) at the top of the pyramid followed by Beaujolais Villages and, finally, Beaujolais.
Vines for the Crus and Villages wines are planted on mostly granite and schist (decomposed rock) to the North; and for Beaujolais on clay-based soils (marl) to the South.
Whites made from Chardonnay also available.
