Beaujolais, Burgundy, France
From a wine making family spanning five generations and the vines ranging from 50-70 years old, Chateau Gaillard's wines should not be overlooked. Grown in the Morgon region of Beaujolais, this area is known for very terroir driven wines and this one is no exception. Some people even say these wines are comparable to the Pinot Noir of its neighboring Burgundy. This wine has an enticing perfume of blackberry, earth and apricot preserve that will awaken your senses. On the palate, you will find flavors of blueberry, plum and Rainier cherry. Add a slight chill to this light bodied red and pair this with chicken Marsala, spicy tuna burgers, or a grilled cheese sandwich.
