Bringing you stories from the world of wine and beer.
Flew back home this evening after three pretty damn fine days of tasting, hence the graphics have reappeared at the top.
So, we were up early this morning to visit three wineries before we headed back home.
Domaine Nicolas Chemarin, AOC Beaujolais Villages.
Domaine Romain Jambon, AOC Brouilly.
Domaine de la Tour des Combes, AOC Beaujolais Villages.
Let’s just say we weren’t disappointed. The complexity of fruit and individuality shown amongst the 16 wines tasted just goes to cement what we have discovered over the last few days.
Let it be said that we need to re-educate the public on what it is that Beaujolais can do.
You won’t find any of the touring group have a bad word to say about the region. What’s more is due to the downfall of snow yesterday it gave us some of the most stunning scenery around.
Here’s a wee taster.
With the trip concluded, and a rather bumpy landing from our pilot, I felt a whole new appreciation for the region.
The producers were great, the food was superb, the company outstanding.
More importantly the wine was out of this world.
So take heed.
Get yourself down to your nearest wine store and start tasting Beaujolais.
You’ll be pleasantly surprised.
Also don’t forget to keep an eye out for my write up plus Harpers feature in February’s edition of the magazine.
