Wine Review: This is a really nice Grand Cru Beaujolais from the Moulin a Vent region. It opens with an acai and blueberry bouquet with a hint of blackberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic, and displays a soft, round mouthfeel. The flavor profile is a tasty Acai with notes of blackberry. I also detected a touch of red currant, minerality and old oak. The finish is dry and its dusty tannins are a bit sticky and linger nicely. This wine would pair nicely with beef bourguignon. Enjoy – Ken

Your comments on this wine:





Clinking Glasses Before Tasting Wine: Originates from medieval times. Milk was often spoiled, water was often polluted. Wine was usually safe. The host would drink the wine first and then clink glasses with guests to show the wine was good and safe for drinking.
