Arlequin Beaujolais Bash – This Thursday

3 Comments

IMG_1721

A wine retail friend of mine recently told me about a customer who was a bit wary about accepting her recommendation that he should add a bottle of Jean Foillard’s Morgon Cote du Py to his shopping cart. The conversation went something like this:

“Do you think I’ll like it?”

“Do you kick puppies?”

“No.”

“OK. You’ll like it.”

Because seriously people: how can you not love Cru Beaujolais / Bro-jo / Bo-jo / Gam-gam or whatever pet nickname you’ve adopted for one of the happiest wines on the planet. It is pure pleasure.

And there really is no better way to enjoy Beaujolais then being surrounded by friends, which is why for the past few years, I’ve done my darndest to get down to Arlequin Wine Merchants for their annual Beaujolais Bash. It takes place on Thursday, from 6-8pm ($35). Don’t miss it!

  1. Nice writing here John. I always follow and enjoy your posts!
    What do you think on the Jean Paul Brun selection? I recently added it to our menu at the restaurant.
    Cheers!

    • Thanks, Austin! I appreciate your comments, and thanks for following the blog. I like the JP Brun wines. THe L’Ancien is a great value (and the 2011 is on point), and generally like his Morgon, too. Which one did you order from the restaurant?

  2. Thanks buddy. I will try some!
