Wolf’s hill demense?

This more than workmanlike product is from Beaujolais and a reliable dinner party stalwart.

Inky colour, full bodied for its origin.

Super wine from Laura’s stock

Graham brought this and we agreed, despite the scorn of the purists, that it is a style of wine we both like drinking: young, fresh and green around the gills.

Sacrilege to be drinking this out of it’s vintage year – never mind 7 months later – and I should have chilled it for the time of year: however – a big light mouthful of fruit, slightly tart but still agreeable.

Roll on November 2014.
