This month’s pick is a flavourful number! Available from Berry Bros & Rudd for £15.50 per single bottle, 2009 Juliénas, Les Paquelets Vieilles Vignes, Domain Eve & Michel Rey is a feisty Beaujolais demanding of taste bud attention. Dark and fruity with some punch to it, the 2009 Juliénas silkily coats the tongue and hangs about awhile for the palate to enjoy it fully.
Perfectly downable on its own but could be a carnivores best friend in liquid form, I’m thinking this slightly peppered, mildly oak-y Pouilly Fuissé red would be a fine companion for a robust Cuban smoke. Now where’s that cigar I’ve been saving for a special occasion?
