Red Wine /// Gamay // Beaujolais / France 

The 2016 Beaujolais Rouge "69" has a simple blackcurrant and strawberry-scented nose with a slight tinniness in the background. The palate is fresh on the entry with pleasant wild strawberry notes and decent depth on the finish. I actually prefer this to the village crus from Maison Coquard. Not sure why it is called "69," however. ROBERT PARKER


Because 1969 was his birth year, that’s why. This is light, easy drinking fair that will go with just about any food and would really like a chill too. John Wilson recently featured this product in an Irish times article for its value and quality. I love the little underpin of graphite (silly taste descriptor I know, but that is wine for you) that gives it savouriness. A fantastic intro to Beaujolais and perfect for someone who is trying to get into red. STSWine
