Brouilly by DuBoeuf – everyday red

This is one of the most beautiful bottles you can buy.  That’s why I put it in the “impress at a party” category.  Even my earlier embarrassment over the Beaujolais region – Wine Lesson Number 1  – doesn’t stop me from recommending this great wine.

LCBO 70540 |Price: $ 16.95

A Grand Cru, this Beaujolais is not so light and fruity that you want to gulp it, although it’s tempting and possible.  There is nice structure so that the tannin works perfectly with the cherry and berry in the wine. Also, it comes in a cool bottle that will stand out on your table and impress as much as the wine. This should be served lightly chilled
