Beaujolais has been called the only white wine that happens to be red. Indeed, the grape’s full name is “gamay noir à jus blanc” (black gamay with white juice). Light and fresh and fruity, the Guéret is everything you want from a fine Beaujolais—and then some. A rush of sweet black cherry and black raspberry with hints of peach, violets, roses, and a finish of peppery spice; this wine is sure to delight and please. Enjoy with country-style pork sausages, frisée salad with bacon and croutons, or a winey coq au vin.
