Beaujolais might just be the perfect wine.
(Actually I’m trying to be diplomatic; I’m pretty sure that Jean Foillard’s 2007 Morgon IS in fact the perfect wine.)
If I were pressed to come up with my “Desert Island Top 10 Bottles” (à la Nick Hornby) it would be up at the top of the list along with Billecart-Salmon Brut Rose, Ostertag Muenchberg Riesling, and Quintarelli Amarone – not only because it’s amazing, but even more so because it is the most refreshing red wine I’ve yet found. Ideal for that island heat.
“What??” You say. “You mean that stuff with the colorful label that comes out in November?”
