Free Beaujolais Wine Tasting
September 1, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Stop by the store this Saturday for a Free Beaujolais Wine Tasting. We’ll pour some of the top wines of the region, including a sensational Chardonnay and a couple of Crus.
Asheville’s Best Free Wine Tasting – Just stop by – we’ve got plenty of free parking!
If you’re still turning your nose up to Beaujolais, you obviously haven’t had the right one(s) yet! Sure, there are plenty of big, commercial producers that make very ordinary wines. But there are also many small vignerons that make wines that will take your breath away. Join us as we expose you to the small grower/producer side of Beaujolais — you’ll thank us! Taste, learn, save big every Saturday at Table Wine.
All of the featured tasting wines are 20% off by the bottle on tasting day only.
1. 2016 Domaine des Terres Dorees Beaujolais Blanc (Beaujolais, France) – Jean-Paul Brun makes one of the top value Chardonnays in all of Burgundy……….yes, Beaujolais is part of Burgundy. His vines are old, he farms organically, and he doesn’t do much to his wine, letting the natural richness and intensity of these old vines shine through. The resulting wine is rich, but fresh, and layered and complex, but crushable. It also ages quite well………..and it’s on sale!
2. 2016 Julien Sunier Regnie (Beaujolais, France) – Julien Sunier is one of the young, rising star producers of Beaujolais. And he excels with his Regnie, one of the most underrated of the Beaujolais Crus. Julien ages all of his wines in old, used Roumier barrels, and this certainly enhances the texture and mouthfeel of his wines. Loaded with ripe cherry, strawberry, clove, and spice notes, this is no simple, fruity wine. Far from it!
3. 2016 Chateau de Pizay Morgon (Beaujolais, France) – Pizay is one of Beaujolais’ oldest producers, and their Morgon is one of the great values of the entire region. “Lively cherry and raspberry aromas are energized by a bracing suggestion of peppery spices. Silky and precise on the palate, offering bitter cherry and red berry flavors that turn sweeter and rounder with air.” – Vinous Media – 90 points
