|Now this is my kind of Beaujolais!|
100% Gamay from Morgon, Beaujolais, France.
SRP of $18 and available for as low as $15.
From the bottle:
"Full, rich, palate-pleasing flavors of cherries and kirsch personify this domaine Cru.I have to admit that I'm not a fan of the whole Beaujolais Nouveau phenomenon, although I will concede that it is brilliant marketing. Today's wine, on the other hand, comes from the largest of the Beaujolais Cru and is a different matter entirely. But before we get to that, for more info on Beaujolais and the Cru sytem check out these two previous posts:
