For our final tasting we left the best for last! 2 Cru Beaujolais 1 from Regnie and the other from Morgon. Both were around $20 and first rate. Frankly I have always had the buy with your eyes closed on the Beaujolais shelf and have never been disappointed.

We will definitely return. 2 to one Bourbon to Bonal and add some Gran Marnier to taste…Lemon is a must. The second cocktail […]
