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!

For 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.
