Beauvais

Beauvais Wine Details
Price: $12.00 per bottle

Description: Our Beauvais wine is a dry red wine. We have blended many red wines, including Marechal foch and Chambourcin to produce this hearty, very drinkable wine. This wine would taste best with red sauce pasta.

Varietal Definition
Chambourcin:
A french-american hybrid used to make red wines with fruity flavors and some herbaceousness. Grown in the cooler regions of Eastern U.S. and Canada. Decreasing acreages also found in Europe; due to stringent European Union rules these varieties cannot be blended with traditional varieties.
Marechal Foch:
A french-american hybrid grape, with french Alsace Gamay origins, noted for producing deeply colored and strongly varietal wines considered by some to have a "Burgundian" character. Also known under the name Foch.
