What is does 'carbonic' mean? It's a winemaking technique that is commonly associated with Beaujolais and Beaujolais Nouveau wines in France. Whole grape clusters are placed into a tank with carbon dioxide and then sealed up. Alcoholic fermentation begins in the interior of the grape due to the lack of oxygen, and the berries eventually burst open! A carbonic maceration results in red wines that are lower in tannin, lighter in style, fruit-driven, fresh and lively!
