Beaujolais Est Arrivé or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Cru Beaujolais
Wine tasting in Milwaukee on Thursday, November 14, 6 to 7:30 pm.
Two paths diverged in the woods of Beaujolais, most people took the one more traveled.
The trodden path was easier, presenting itself at a steep decline into fame, fortune and a villainous hogo of ichor. This is the path of Beaujolais Nouveau, and I have come to destroy it. Or at least stop you from drinking it.
You see, beyond Beaujolais Nouveau, and maybe a bit hidden because of it, is the wonderful world of Cru Beaujolais. Gamay planted where it should be planted and treated with the winemaking respect it deserves, and therefore making some of the most delicious, gulpable easygoing wines on the planet.
Never had a Cru Beaujolais before? Or do you already absolutely adore them? Either way, this tasting is for you. Come and explore these gorgeous wines.
