Barton & Guestier Beaujolais has unsually ripe fruit, along with the light body and floral aromas we expect from Beaujolais. Its primary flavors are Concord grape and red plum with hints of soy sauce and floral notes. It’s very pleasant slightly chilled, to about 60 degrees, and quaffed outside on a warm day. Or, serve it at cellar temperature (65 degrees) with dinner. The light body and relatively low alcohol (12.5 percent) make it an excellent match with all kinds of food — even foods you normally wouldn’t have with red wine, such as shellfish (mussels with fried potatoes would be great) or white-flesh fish.
Nice rose at med salmon color with copper rims. Med elegant nose presents red berries and candied orange. Med body, med acid. Very easy drinking off-dry palate is a joy with red apple, strawberry, mango. Finish is at med- strength but long and converging candied flavors from both nose and palate nicely.
