Feeling cornered by the Wine Etiquette Police on those occasions when you are either serving or ordering fish, and know you ‘should’ pair the meal with a white wine, but feel like a red?
Serve Beaujolais, of course – binNotes’ favorite ‘go-to’ Little Black Dress of wines – versatile enough to accessorize any meal.
This little beauty does the trick quite well:
2009 Gérard Charvet Moulin-à-Vent La Reserve d’Amelie Vieilles Vignes.
Color: Lucid ruby
Acids/Tannins: Low, harmonious, clean finish.
Aromas: Slightly earthy, raspberry notes up front; breathing reveals currant, bramble berry, hints of pepper. NOTE: Beaujolais is best served slightly chilled, like a white. Cheers!
