I’m trying this Georges DuBoeuf Juliénas Beaujolais 2005. (Juliénas is one of the 10 Beaujolais crus, a step up from Beaujolais-Villages. We’ve also tried the Morgon cru.)
It’s delightful. Light-bodied, medium-dry, tasting of cherries. Much lighter than our usual cabs and shirazes, but interesting and fun to drink. It has a summery taste to it, and after all, it did warm up to the high 30s here today. (I think Melody would enjoy this as a change of pace, but she wouldn’t want to stray too long from our big reds with the meaty bodies and the sandpaper tannins…)
Trigger is sleeping on Melody’s chair, sunken into her afghan.
