When I selected the wines for this weekend's tasting, I completely forgot that I'll be out of town and won't get to try the bottles we open. If I had been thinking cleary, I would have put together something humdrum & lame. Instead I pretty much picked the three wines that I'm most excited to try. Not that I'm complaining about a few days in Cincinnati.

I'm most excited for y'all to try the Jean-Paul Thévenet Vieilles Vignes Morgon. One of the OG Gang of Four, Jean-Paul turned back to traditional & natural winemaking practices - away from the mass production by which Beaujolais had made a vapid reputation for itself.

The Vieilles Vignes is produced from 70-year-old vines grown in sand & decomposed granite soil. After a long fermentation in concrete cuve, the wine is aged on fine lees in old Burgundy barrels and then bottled without fining or filtration.
