Pavillon de Chavannes 'Cuvée des Ambassades' Cote de Brouilly 2020
Region: Cote de Brouilly, Beaujolais, Burgundy, France
Drinks Best: Now
A good Beaujolais is one of my wine crutches - and for good reason. It's eminently versatile and it's fresh flavors and great acidity support so many different dishes instead of dominating them. And with so many different flavors on the Thanksgiving table, you're going to want a wine that can happily pair with everything in front of you. This little gem from the smallest and most southern of the Beaujolais Crus is up to the task with its pretty floral aromas, black cherry flavors, and a lively finish temping you go for a third helping of stuffing!
Puts you in the right state of mind for a long and eventful day with the family
What do I like to drink?
I tend to lean into ‘old world’ styles of wines - but that doesn’t mean only wines from the old world - that have great acidity to them. These wines are naturally food friendly... and I like to do some damage in the kitchen. But overall I’m a very seasonal wine drinker - warm weather has me leaning into fresh rosés and vibrant whites and when the weather turns cool, I love some Nebbiolo and heavier reds to go with the braised and richer foods of the season.
