Beaujolais: If You Want Value - You’ve Got It

While prices for French wines with historic pedigree are often dramatically rising, Beaujolais, for the most part, continues to provide a respite from an overheated market. That, plus a string of recent vintages with average quality level ranging from very good to outstanding, makes Beaujolais one of the most intriguing regions in the world for savvy wine lovers.

2017 L’Ecole No. 41 Sémillon Stillwater Creek Vineyard, 91 points

This pungent, pristine Sémillon entices with scents of lemon curd and orange blossom. Dense and lively on the palate, it conveys a subtle touch of honeyed sweetness to its juicy flavors of citrus peel, white stone fruits, flowers and minerals. The palate-dusting finish is long and alive. (ST)

1971 Domaine Robert Arnoux Vosne-Romanée Les Suchots 1er Cru

I had never tasted a bottle from the era of Charles’s grandfather, Robert Arnoux, whose passing in 1995 led to his son-in-law taking over. But this bottle revealed a connection between Robert Arnoux and Charles Lachaux’s approach to winemaking.
