What to Drink Now

Episode VIII: Fruity Reds


Next » 1 of 8
What to Drink Now We’re getting fairly close to the end of this exploration of wine and I, possibly like yourself, am finding this more challenging, and preconceived notion-challenging in particular, than I had originally thought. Now recall that my point along this path was not to precisely classify wines, but was to try to build out a sort of flow chart to help you discover wines that you might enjoy based on wines you’ve already enjoyed.

There’s a whole business behind this sort of taste mapping, and it can get really complex, particularly when one tries to do this pragmatically. I’m trying to do it the old-fashioned way (sort of) with virtual pen and paper! Today I’m going to be taking a look at fruity, or more appropriately, fruitier red wines. Of course you can take almost any of these wines and fit them into another category, which is what I expect I’ll be doing soon, but for today we’ll be taking a look at the fruitier side of red wines!

    almost 40 years ago I read that Gamay and Gamay Beaujolais are not the same grape. What is the current thinking about the DNA of these two?
