Comte de Langeron Beaujolais Villages
St. Louis Post Dispatch
If you’re looking for a lighter-bodied, fruity red that can be served a little chilled in the soaring temperatures of summer, wines from Beaujolais are a great choice. Beaujolais is located in the southern part of France’s Burgundy region, and its red wines are made from gamay, an ancient natural clone of pinot noir. They rank in quality starting with a basic Beaujolais up to those labeled by the name of special villages within the appellation. These wines are different from Beaujolais Nouveau, a separate classification that refers to wines that are only seven to nine weeks old and released annually on the third Thursday of November.
Comte de Langeron 2016 Beaujolais Villages, France
Bought • Wine and Cheese Place, 457 North New Ballas Road, in June for $13.99 (in stock at all 4 locations)
Description • This red is a step up in quality from a basic Beaujolais. Although it’s also a light-bodied, easy-to-drink wine, this red is drier, more complex and slightly more tannic than the Domaine de la Prébende. It comes from a family-owned winery that makes small lots of wines from old vines.This Beaujolais Villages would go well with chicken and other white meat and salmon. - Gail Appleson - STL Post Dispatch
