Just Say No to Nouveau

Beaujolais Nouveau is too fruit-punchy for our taste. We prefer deep, vibrant Beaujolais from the 10 cru villages:

2005 Guy Breton Vieilles Vignes Morgon ($26) This sustainably-farmed Morgon from 80-year-old vines is supersaturated with wild strawberry flavor.

2005 Potel-Aviron Chénas ($17) A famed Burgundy producer and a longtime Beaujolais maker teamed up to make this gorgeous lily-scented wine.

2005 Terres Dorées Fleurie ($22) Jean-Paul Brun's use of natural yeasts and minimal sulfites allow this wine's soft cherry and vanilla aromas to stand out.
