Gilles Gelin Beaujolais Village


Beaujolais is not only fun to say, but very fun to drink; and hardy as fancy as it sounds.

Beaujolais is the place, Gamay is the grape. Think of it as a very approachable pinot noir—light in body with cranberry and mulling spices on the palate, there’s no wonder this wine is a fantastic consideration for Thanksgiving. And it can certainly afford to lay down until then, as the tannins are a touch grippy.

I recommend sipping on this easy-drinker with sliced Parmigiano-Reggiano—you’ll feel the tannins completely disappear, leaving nothing but beautiful fruit to enjoy. The definition of a wine meant to be sipped with food; its a winner, for sure.

Similar To: Pinot Noir, Tempranillo

From Where? Beaujolais, France

Pairing Suggestion: As was mentioned, this one certainly should have food accompany it. I recommend Roasted Chicken with Herbs, or Pork Tenderloin with Cranberry Reduction, or what else? Thanksgiving dinner!
