A tour of Beaujolais
Is there more to Beaujolais than just nouveau......
On the release day of Beaujolais Nouveau, join us for a tasting tour of all 10 Beaujolais crus with wine professional Line Moullier of Les Caves de Pyrene.
While we’re never ones to pass up an excuse for a party, we have mixed feelings about the wine itself. At only 6 weeks old, it’s an incredibly young wine, and badly made examples (of which there are many) can taste of fruit flavour bubblegum. Some of them can be fun, but a thin, ready glass of Hubba Bubba is hardly the wine I’d choose to represent one of the great wine growing regions of France. So to make amends, we’ve invited our wine merchant, Line Moullier from Les Caves de Pyrene, to bring along some real Beaujolais, to show us what we might be missing. Naturally, we’ll be selecting a range of wonderful cheeses to accompany them.
Flights of cheese and accompaniments will be paired and shared amongst guests down our 20 seat tasting table.
Come hungry and thirsty, leave happy and educated.
