2010 Chateau Du Bois De La Salle Morgon ‘La Croix’: LoHud Wine of the Week | Mixed Case 7 Bottle 12


TJN 1106 red wines for fall

LoHud Wine of the Week

2010 Chateau Du Bois De La Salle Morgon ‘La Croix’: Much more powerful and complex than the typical Beaujolais thought of this time of year, this wine is elegant and passes along its deep expression of terroir from the region. Red cherry, raspberry, earth and crushed stone flavors abound. Region: Beaujolais, France. Price: $17. Goes with: Turkey, chicken, cheeses and even light pasta dishes. Why I chose it: It’s time to think about Thanksgiving, and Beaujolais has gotten a bad rap over the years. True Cru Beaujolais, like this Morgon, can be quite sophisticated while still retaining its lighter style. The perfect turkey wine!

This is Bottle No. 11 in our seventh series. More recommendations: food.lohudblogs.com/category/mixed-case.

mixedcaseFor 12 weeks, we feature a wine, and include tasting notes and suggestions for pairings. At the end of the 12 weeks, we’ll review our Mixed Case, and recap the choices. Each mixed case will be chosen by a local wine shop owner, who will also become our wine expert-in-residence during his or her tenure. (So should we need recommendations for a holiday, for example. we’ll ask.) We’ll get a new expert for each case. Right now, we’re working on our Mixed Case chosen by Stu Levine of Vino 100 in White Plains.

  1. Why buy French? California wines are every bit as good if not better and are consistent from year to year.
