    Coteaux Bourguignons: A Solution for Struggling Beaujolais appellations?

    Beaujolais Aujourd’hui reports on the struggles of regional Beaujolais and Beaujolais-Villages appellations, noting that the countryside is dotted with parcels where vines have been pulled in the last ten years.

    Grower Christophe Coquard states that, with the city of Lyon not far away, demand for real estate is high. Houses, he speculates, may soon sprout on abandoned parcels. Certain growers such as Jean-Paul Brun and Pierre-Marie Chermette are nonetheless able to sell these basic, maligned appellations successfully.

    Does the new Coteaux Bourguignons appellation represent the solution? They explain that this denomination covers the entirety of Burgundy and Beaujolais, applying to wines of a single variety or a blend of Gamay and Pinot Noir for reds and rosés, and Chardonnay and Aligoté for still dry whites.
