2015 Beaujolais Preview: Atypically Brawny but Often Excellent

While Beaujolais has been on as strong a roll as any wine region in France over most of the last decade, the 2015 vintage in Beaujolais has been receiving more attention than any I can recall, including the outstanding 2014 and 2013. But do the ‘15s justify the hype, especially for veteran fans of these wines?

L’Arcangelo, Rome, Italy

If asked what I think is Rome’s best overall restaurant, I have no difficulty in answering “L’Arcangelo”. Simply put, the restaurant is as close as to a “sure bet” in the world of fine dining as there is.

2014 Les Trouvés Red Wine ($25.00) 90

2014 Les Trouvés Red Wine, 90 points

This complex, savory Provençal-inspired blend of Syrah/Mourvèdre/Grenache from Washington offers an alluring perfume of blackberry, violet, wild sage and black olive. Its ripe but dry and juicy palate impression and fine-grained tannins should pair well with grilled meat and piquant chicken. (ST)
