There’s not much kosher Beaujolais, but what there is, is choice.

I’m a sucker for Beaujolais wines! Back around 1992, I had my first taste of Beaujolais –it was an Abarbanel import (of the 1990 vintage), and it was fabulous and I quickly fell in love with Gamay Noir, the grape from which all Beaujolais wine is made.

They’re hard to find kosher in the U.S., but there is one, imported by Victor Kosher Wines.

Domaine La Ferrage, Côte de Brouilly, 2012 is a this lovely, medium bodied 100 percent Gamay wine with soft tannins and medium acidity. It offers aromas of ripe raspberries, blackberries, boysenberries and dark plums with some lovely earthy notes and a slight whiff of smoke, followed on the palate by the same with additional notes of currants and some graphite, with stronger plum and blackberry notes. The medium length but satisfying finish offers a touch of mocha, and a bit more earthiness. Really lovely. Drink now through 2018.
