It is mid April.
Xavier and I exit the autoroute as the sun is setting and head toward Chiroubles, one of the ten beaujolais cru villages.
In search of a gite for the night....
....Fleurie, and a great restaurant choice.
Note the vintage...2003. Beaujolais' are typically drunk young but then there is nothing typical about Xavier and myself. The owner kept telling us we should have a younger wine. We did not succumb to her wishes. AND this was absolutely delicious! And my frog legs...a local specialty....were perfectly executed...whoops that doesn't sound right!
Tasting room at our gite.....early morning wine tasting before departure...and, of course, our wine purchase.
Now on to a day of discovery.........The Hills of Beaujolais
