The Wine Recommendations
La Grande Colline
2012 Vin Nouveau
|Where||Saint Peray, Northern Rhône, Rhône Valley, France|
This historically has only been made for Japan, but I scored it at the fab Parisian shop, La Caves des Papilles. Nouveau or Primeur or whatever you want to call it, is just an early bottling of syrah meant to preserve freshness and youth. Glouglougloug at 13% alcohol.
Domaine des Terres Dorées (Jean Paul Brun)
|Where||Beaujolais, Burgundy, France|
|SO2||Hangs around 30ppm|
Forget about the deux mille huit on the label, we’re talking deux mille dix, and it’s a vin de pays because roussane grapes aren’t allowed in the Beaujolais, where this is born. Extraordinary peachy juice. Fresh and lovely.
