Beaujolais in the Bunker
Back for more!
There’s some sort of snow/sleet/freezing rain situation in the forecast for this coming weekend.
And what do I — as of Wednesday, the proud owner of an additional 20 cubic feet of kiln-dried firewood — say to that?
Bring it on, baby.
I’m also the proud owner of a couple bottles of American Kennel Club-approved dog-safe ice melt, which I bought to make sure my doggie neighbors don’t get gunk on their paws. I just need the bread, eggs, and milk, and I’ll be ready to hunker in the bunker.
And I’ve also got some 2019 Jean-Marc Burgaud Beaujolais-Villages Les Vignes de Lantignié to hunker down with!
Beaujolais-Villages is a slightly different classification than the Beaujolais we enjoyed last week. It’s in the northern part of the region, and there are 38 villages that are part of it. The village here is Lantigné, and like all wine from the region the grape is gamay.
This is a lighter, more fruit-forward wine than last week’s. There’s a brighter raspberry on the nose, and a little cranberry on the palate too. It’s fresh, and again a bit of a surprise to find it’s 12.5%. I kept this out on the patio today, ad that brought it down to a really great temperature. I like this freshness, and I’d match it with some duck breast, or maybe a mushroom dish.
Stay warm this weekend, and make sure you hit the wine store before Sunday!
