« Wine party at Paris wine shop | Main | Pressing at Yvon Metras (Beaujolais) »

"...an era (early 20th century) when wine was shared around a table without this ostentatious need to analyze it from A to Z."

There was a shift in my appreciation for wine when I read a short interview with Jacques Pepin by Wine Spectator. They asked Pepin what his favorite wine was. They seemed a bit shocked with his answer of
"Beaujolais", which was neither specific nor pretentious.

I understood him when I took my own trip together with my wife passing through Beaujolais. We passed a
memorable day with tasty food, wonderful people, and at the end, running to catch an early train with bottles of Beaujolais in hand.

Now every time we enjoy a bottle of Beaujolais, the fond memories flash back to us. Was the
bottle from a famous producer? Or do the grapes have a royal pedigree? Although good to know, but it
is not the most important thing. What is important is that it was a good bottle from a fantastic wine region!
