The twelfth installment of Noble Rot magazine is a celebration of France’s newest ‘fine’ wine region, Beaujolais. After years of notoriety for producing lakes of generic plonk, magical Gamays from producers such as Marcel Lapierre, Jean Foillard and Jean-Louis Dutraive have spearheaded a renaissance of authentic winemaking that has become many discerning drinkers’ ‘go to’. Meet the people, places and wines that are making us excited in Noble Rot’s Short Guide To Beaujolais, whilst Rotters Jon Bonné and Jamie Goode wax lyrical about their love for the region.
Noble Rot’s ever insatiable appetite wouldn’t allow a trip to Beaujolais to occur without a detour to France’s culinary heartland, Lyon. We take a non-stop tour of the city’s restaurants, bars and wine shops and feature inspired recipes and stories from Montreal’s Joe Beef, chef Jackson Boxer and America’s sommelier-in-chief, Daniel Johnnes.
Profile of Rioja’s ultimate bastion of authenticity, López de Heredia, meet enigmatic Israeli chef Eyal Shani, and Tim Hayward and Mina Holland discuss the do’s and don’t’s of giving and receiving wine.
