Wine Geek Recommended
Meet the CoolVines Wine Geek! He’ll guide you toward – or away from! – wines that have a unique flavor profile: intentionally oxidized wines, earthy, stinky wines, wines with a bit of fritz on the tongue. Look for him throughout our web site, and on the shelves in our stores, to point the way toward these geeky wines.
Juicy texture full of red berry compote, earthy currants, and a refreshing thread of acidity. Really quite delish yet will also age well over the next few years.
The region of Beaujolais is the southernmost part of the Burgundy department, sitting to the west of the Saone River. While its reputation has been somewhat tarnished by the thin, insipid juice proffered by certain mass producers, it nonetheless produces some of the finest and most enjoyable light-bodied wine in the world. To the north of the region lay the 10 villages that have been granted "Cru" status for the extraordinary Gamay reds they produce each village's wines have clearly unique attributes, ranging from the very pretty and feminine to the intensely structured and earthy. Around these vineyards are the better "Villages" level parcels, which tend to share in the increased structure that northern Beaujolais sandy clay soil over granite provides. To the south, the land flattens out and the soil becomes much softer, producing vines of less concentration. It is this region where much of the for young consumption (if at all) only Beaujolais hail from.
