(Beaujolais, France) $15

Wonder what lots of cabernet winemakers drink when they aren’t drinking cabernet (or beer)? They drink great gamay like this minerally rich Beaujolais from Dupeuble. The sheer deliciousness of this wine is exciting. It’s important to know that Dupeuble does not make a candylike, confected, tutti-frutti, commercial style of Beaujolais. Instead, the family’s gamays are serious wines made the old-fashioned way. If you’ve never had exquisite gamay and think of it only as a grape that makes simple quaffs, you must try this beauty. And at $15, there’s no reason not to! (13.5% abv)
