When the last bottle of Gros 'Noré Rosé left the building last spring I reached from my knees and cried in despair, "Then we'll never see you again?" And out of the æther a whispered reassurance, checking my adolescence: "Never is a long time, Kevin."
Actually, I've been watching Westerns. Nonetheless, The Gros 'Noré has returned. And at a ridiculous price. In celebration of the rejoinder we're cracking a bottle this Saturday, completing a provocative tasting of classic French wine.
In addition to the Provençal rosé, we're opening Clos la Coutale Cahors & Jean Foillard Beaujolais-Villages, two reds that keep me coming back every time.
You may have heard of the Gang of Four, the Kermit Lynch coined posse of winemakers who determined to return to traditional winemaking practices in Beaujolais in the early 80s. But have you heard of Jules Chauvet, who inspired the four, especially Foillard, to go back? Click Here to nerd out to an article about the father of natural French wine.
