December 3, 2012 / Wine in Tami Time

Grateful for the delicious!

When I was a novice wine drinker, I discovered Beaujolais Nouveau. How cool is it that they harvest the grapes in France and within a month, get that wine over here? I went through a denial period, laughed at by “more serious” wine people while I was a rookie talking about how I loved it. A guest told me she was in Beaujolais the day Nouveau was released and it was a bunch of hammered people in the streets drinking it out of the bottle. Then I  drank a bunch of “more serious” wine in the interim, becoming myself ever so much more serious about wine. Then I open a bottle of Dominique Piron Chenas, or Jean Foillard Morgon Cote de Py or Diochon Moulin a Vent and I remember how I came to love wine in the beginning. Attending Guild of Sommelier tastings in Las Vegas last year and in San Diego this year further confirmed the seriousness of  this non-serious wine. I tasted Dupeuble when I took Advanced in October 2011 at Master Belding’s table and he referred to Dupeuble as “our good man in Beaujolais”. That guy rules Movember, check him out on the Kermit Lynch website

What it comes down to is that if you like light, stony, acidic wine, you will love Beaujolais. Seriously.
