An idiosyncratic journal of wines I buy from a mix of Internet sources and retailers in the Northern Virginia/D.C. area. Mostly inexpensive and moderately-priced stuff, reflecting my frugal New England roots. Cent anni!

2005 Paul Durdilly BEAUJOLAIS "Les Grandes Coasses" (Burgundy, France
Holding up remarkably well for a 4-year old simple Beaujolais, this wine was crisp and refreshing.
Youthful dark ruby color. Crisp, minerally scents and tart cherry aromas. Lean, light-bodied, with good, focused tart cherry flavors and tangy acidity. 86. I got it on-line from North Berkeley Imports. Lists for $11.50.
