I wrote a long piece for the The Gourmet Retailer Blog about a tasting I attended in late April of Geoges Duboeuf’s wines. It was a wonderful event where we were able to taste a number of the Beaujolais Crus. I wanted to post some photos of the event on this blog. Please check out the post if you have time.
A group that promotes Beaujolais known as Les Campagnons Du Beaujolais offered a beautiful cake to Georges Duboeuf to celebrate his 76th birthday. The cake referenced all of the 10 Beaujolais Cru. Truly beautiful, it was delicious as well.
A few friends in the wine business have been inducted into the society including Cynthia Cheng from Find Your Craving and Michael Schaefer, a wine judge, educator and salesman.
My favorite Beaujolais Cru of the evening was the Chiroubles. It was an elegant and refined expression of the Gamay grape.
Summer has arrived and I intend to add Beaujolais Crus to my summer wine list. They are also easy on the wallet, always a joy.
