FRANCE : BEAUJOLAIS : VILLIÉ-MORGON
LIGHT-BODIED, OFF-DRY, STRAWBERRY, POMEGRANATE, CRANBERRY, NO OAKKarim Vionnet (technically a négociant, he oversees several organically-framed plots around Beaujolais) is THE master of Gamay Made In the Carbonic Way. ‘Grabuge!’ (which translates to “mayhem”) is his insanely fun and drinkable take on dessert wine: a low-abv (8%!), demi-sec sparkler bursting with flavor, sweetness and bubbles. It’s best (and easily) enjoyed in one sitting, so make sure to save some room.

Approachable yet structured, this classic Chilean Malbec has lots of beautifully intense red fruit flavors followed by a dash black pepper and light touches of oak-derived notes like vanilla and chocolate.
