Wine Blogging Wednesday #43 – Comfort Wine
Another Wine Blogging Wednesday already! The theme this month is Comfort Wine – wine that is an old standby, an old faithful, an old reliable. This theme was introduced by Joel at Wine Life Today. Since I’m a newbie, I really have no such animal yet. So… I chose a wine that someone else felt comfortable recommending to me. I was looking to try a Beaujolais and was looking at the Georges Duboeuf selections at Gordon’s (see link) and this was recommended to me: Jean-Marc Burgaud Morgon Cote du Py Vieilles Vignes 2006. Beaujolais is a lighter shade of Burgundy. This wine has a light body, some evidence of aging in oak, cherries on the nose, and bit more of a tannic structural attack than I expected. Quite dry, this stuff is refreshing and light but not wimpy, and would probably go with a variety of foods as a thoroughly comfortable choice.
