There are times when Beaujolais just seems right, and tonight was one of those nights. We found ourselves exploring a quaint little town, and stumbled upon a French restaurant that we just had to try. The menu was wonderful, but it also pulled us in several directions – a little spicy, some wild game, some seafood – you name it. So what could go better with all of those things than a smooth Beaujolais that could complement the entire meal. The bottle was presented and opened, and the light floral aromas wafted over to me. Another sniff and the aromas of blackberry and just a little spice and tobacco complemented the rose and violet. The flavor was silky and well-balanced, with a medium body and a nice finish that had just a hint of mineral to it. And we were right – it went well with everything.
