Hard to decide whether to pair this meal with a mellow piano concerto or raw, soulful funk. And that's what I love about cru Beaujolais.

2013. Joyful juice. Equally appropriate for the picnic table or fine dining. It's classy either way.

Sweet and sour. Not a ton of depth here in richness but layers of complexity continue. Good texture. VA is a bit high for me but brings higher toned fruit. Nice tannins to reel it all in.

bump for the pairing. Smoked pork neck and peppery roasted cauliflower is spot on with this

From the "Gang of Four" (courtesy of Kermit Lynch the three others being Marcel Lapierre, Jean Foillard and Guy Breton).
I detect a bit of disturbing band aid notes (as in Brett) which leads me to believe this otherwise great wine/vintage won't last long so drink and enjoy!
Cru Beaujolais are sooo overlooked!!
