Bright red purple in the glass. Shy nose (initially) of red berries. Medium light body with lowish acidity and medium minus tannins that assert themselves with air. Medium finish ends on the dark side, especially after food. Serve slightly below cellar temperature and it’ll give its best. Great introduction to the more “serious” side of Beaujolais.

People underestimate Beaujolais true beauty when they base it off of the Nouveau. This Village from Louis Jadot is an oldie but goody. 2012, 100% Gamay. Medium/light bodied, nose of lavender fields some crushed ripe cherries. Smooth and elegant on the palate. Finish is short n dry. Good entry into the genre, always makes for a good Thanksgiving wine. Low alcohol which makes it pair well with this cheese plate.

First sip acidic but then it became very light with food. Almost watery.

Juicy, ruby, a little bit spicy, with a nice minty finish. Not a serious wine, heaven knowns, but for $14, quite satisfactory.

Strawberries, field herbs, a whiff of balsamic. Restrained fruit, vanishing finish. It’s Gamay all right, but no more. 12.5% abv | $14

Begins with a surprisingly complex nose of strawberry along with herbal notes of thyme and peppercorn. On the palate you get an initial burst of bright fresh strawberries along with hints of sour cherry which continue through a brief but enjoyable finish. Overall a lovely refreshing wine that paired well with Lemongrass chicken legs & baby bok choy. ($10) [12/7/17]
