Can't remember the last time I heard it mentioned. Always used to be a big thing with the supermarkets promoting it. Many yonks ago we had a super new beajolais from Tesco's and bought a couple of cases of it. Had a e a very pretty label - white with pink flowers. Ring a bell, anybody?

's food thrI'm reminded of this because I mentioned on a "what's cooking?" thread yesterday that my Saturday lunch would be a ham sandwich and a a domaine Beaujolais (a Julienas). I should have added that I would also be listening to my favourite Abba song: "Gamay, gamay, gamay un vin after midnight".

Thank you for the two links you provided. I will take note and renew my quest when next in those stores. I do receive news letters from both those stores but never bothered to check out their wine stock. A friend who spent a lot of his time in Germany and knew the wine region where the red wine was produced told me the Germans would never let that go to other countries. I didn't bother, subsequently ,to look.
where the red wine grape grew r
I think as Buen says they appear only occasionally and I haven't tried them but would like to.
Tesco do a red German wine for seven quid a bottle .
Hans Baer Pinot Noir.I don't drink wine but I buy it for my husband who is German.And btw it's Botschaft :)

I may try that Shaneystar, I shop online at Tesco.
Danke shaneystar. Been many years since I entered the Botschaft.
German was my forefathers first language but not mine now.
Crikey. The UK is flooded with it. I have a load of catching up to do.
It'll be double bubble after Brexit :)
Better stock up before Brexit . My vote remains the same however. :-)
Nobody with half a palate would ever seek out German red wine.
I've never tried a German red but I had lovely German Whites in Munich a few weeks ago.

By coincidence this week's Spectator is doing an offer on the good stuff, the Morgons and Fleuries etc. May treat myself. Mind you, what do I eat with it?

...but nothing too strong, eh? Brie?
Comté (12 months old) pour moi
BN was always ropey and was simply a gimmick to market under-prepared wine.
Those of you interested in wine might enjoy reading the book "The Critic" by Peter May.



"...After famous wine critic Gil Petty vanishes during a tasting trip to the unheralded Gaillac region, his wine-soaked body reappears, clothed in the ceremonial robes of a wine society and hanging in the woods. Determined to find the killer, Enzo rents a vineyard cottage. His welcome from the police and the local vintners isn’t exactly cordial. But his contact, Gendarme Roussel, has to admit that mistakes were made when another wine-preserved body appears in the woods..."

Never heard of comté cheese, Khandro. Fortunately I've got a Tesco delivery tomorrow, so I've just added it to the order.

Just the ticket as I'vve still not got round to drinking the Juliénas.
