It's the most wonderful wine time of the year! This week on the podcast, we're talking about Beaujolais. If you're not already in love with this wine, forget everything you think you know.
Beaujolais, a light-bodied, fruit-forward red wine made from gamay grapes in France, is experiencing an identity (and often quality) revolution among the more affordable bottles. That's primarily true for the get-it-before-it's-gone 2017 Beaujolais Nouveau, one of which we try this week.
Cork 'n' Bottle's Bob Hemauer and host Lindsay Christians taste through two wines this week (look for the words in bold):
- 2017 Jean-Paul Brun Domaine des Terres Dorees Beaujolais Nouveau
- 2015 Domaine Marcel Lapierre "Raisins Gaulois" Vin de France
Each of these wines costs $14-$15 retail.
