"This flirtatiously fruity French beauty is made from the Gamay grape grown in the northern part of the Beaujolais region, which is rare for a wine at this price. Most everyday priced Beaujolais wines comes from the south. The vines grow in the traditional freestanding bush or gobelet style near the villages La Chapelle de Guinchay and Romaneche - Thorins which lie just to the east of the Crus Fleurie and Chnas. The soil is a free-draining mixture of decomposed granite, clay and sand. Grapes are picked by hand and vinified in the tradition of carbonic maceration which helps to extract fruit rather than tannin, producing bright, lively wines best consumed fresh and while youthful.
Pour a glass and youll taste a smoothly textured red wine with flavors of fresh strawberries, blueberries, blossums, spice and hints of wildflowers. Beaujolais is a vivacious red thats food friendly and pairs well with everything from beef stew to butternut squash linguine with crispy sage.
Beaujolais is often referred to by the French as a Vin de Soif or a Wine of Thirst. he English might refer to it as a quaffer. Whatever you call it, a good Beaujolais should be satisfyingly refreshing andmade to be consumed Sur le Pouce or on the go often with a leisurely meal of omelets, cheese or charcuterie." ~ Winery notes.
90+ Ninety Plus CellarsView all from 90+ Ninety Plus Cellars
90+ Cellars was created because we like drinking great wine anytime we want. We wanted an everyday "go to" wine that tasted like one usually reserved for special occasions, a delicious wine that we could open any night of the week or whenever friends arrived. Unfortunately, that wine didn't exist or just took too much time to find.
So, in the spring of 2009, armed with a copy of the latest Wine Spectator, Kevin called and emailed wineries with a history of high ratings and asked if they had wine for sale. Some told him to get lost, others simply ignored him, but in the end, he found a handful of willing wineries. The plan was this: They put the 90+ Cellars label on their wine, and we sell it for less.
You may recall that the economy wasn't in the best shape in 2009. Demand for wines priced more than $20 a bottle plummeted and inventories were piling up. Rather than discount their wine and erode the value of their brand, wineries were willing to part with it for a reduced price.
That summer 90+ Cellars was born. Since then, it's been our goal to seek out, bottle and deliver fine wine that costs you less money. The landscape has changed, but our mission has not. We partner with highly respected wineries around the globe to provide you with wine that will impress your friends and keep more dollars in your pocket.
Saturday night taste. Tuesday night price.
That's 90+ Cellars.
