2016 Brouilly (Boulon, Domaine J.)
Domaine J. Boulon, Brouilly, Beaujolais, Burgundy, France 2016100% Gamay JAMMY FOREST FRUIT & STEWED STRAWBERRY, FIRM TANNINS Domaine J. Boulon proudly presents: don't judge a book by its cover. This is wine made by farmers, not marketing execs; they are way more worried about the quality of their wine than a pretty label. Full of ripe, concentrated red berries & plums, dried herbs, and fresh violets, backed up by firm structure and grippy tannins, this is good, honest Brouilly. Five generations of farmers have led to this bottle, so drink up! Serving suggestion: Balsamic vinegar marinated chicken thighs w/ roasted cherry tomatoes & garlicky wilted spinach. Turkey tamales w/ queso fresco, sauteed summer squash & creamy chipotle pinto beans.
