We poured some tasty wines this past Friday, all from Beaujolais. The goal was to show off some of our favorite Crus, and indeed, the Foillard Fleurie that we opened as a surprise was the first to fly off the shelves.
Friday, January 12th, 2018 wines presented by Anne Brown of Robins Cellars
Dupeuble 2016 (Beaujolais, Burgundy) Ok, ok, not CRU Beaujolais, but we wanted one blanc selection to share with you!
Diochon 2015 (Moulin au Vent, Cru Beaujolais, Burgundy) Rich, robust, and lush gamay that goes down easy. This is a Kewsick favorite-- whenever we stock this on the shelves we sell out within a few days.
Bichot 'Roche Granit' 2015 (Julienas, Cru Beaujolais, Burgundy) This Cru was supposedly named after Julius Caesar to commemorate the Roman influence on the local wine trade (there's over 2,000 years of history making wine here!). The wine is from classic Beaujolais granite soils, which the winemaker notes on the label.
Thivin 'Zaccharie' 2015 (Cotes de Brouilly, Cru Beaujolais, Burgundy) Rare Cru Beaujolais from the donut hole of Cotes de Brouilly at the very southern end. This is a blend of old, old vineyards, and very little of this ever reaches Virginia!
Chignard 2016 (Fleurie, Cru Beaujolais, Burgundy) Blossomy, fruit-centered, floral bouquet gamay with an uncanny ability to pair with just about everything....
