A red that pours like a white? Recently, binNotes shared a bottle of 2010 Domaine Dupeuble Beaujolais, imported by Kermit Lynch ($14.95), at a Mediterranean-themed evening with fellow food and winers.
Served slightly chilled, the Beaujolais paired well with every dish presented, from stuffed grape leaves to cous cous to chocolate-dipped apricots. Not to be confused with its more exuberant sibling, Beaujolais Nouveau, this year-round Beaujolais offers an uncomplicated freshness, translucent color, and subtle foundation to any food palette.
In researching the vigneron for this post, M. Damien Dupeuble had binNotes at his handle-barred mustache! Enjoy the above links, and many thanks to the fine folks at KLWM for the graphics provided. Santé!
