Name the 9 Villages wines of Beaujolais..always a good one to get any wine freak worked up. As you know (course you do...)..the best Beaujolais don't have the word on the labels..
There are maybe 3 styles..those that need, like big brother Burgundy, time in the bottle...then there is the 'wild stuff'..untypical and for the adventurer..and finally...the juicy ones..like our example here....
Domaine du Vissoux Fleurie Poncié 2008
Tart & slightly bitter at first...but it grew and filled out nicely after 20 minutes...lovely juicy Gamay..flowers...oops..course it should do..with that name...quite full..no great length..but that's not the style..I had a freshly made Pizza with it....the real stuff..with a Viagra stiffness...not those gigantic ones that hang..seen in all the US movies...I have a question here..if the pizza is delivered and is then eaten..it is cold...a terrible thought..cold pizza!...anyway..where was I?..ah yes..Beaujolais..room temperature...but would be nice cooled...(it is getting warmer..and my thoughts are wandering to sitting outside and slurping)...and this has a gentle soft sweetness...and goes down better than a cold pizza!
