Ever find yourself really wanting a glass of red wine but reaching for something white because it is just a little too warm outside? I often have in the past so I now make sure to have a few bottles of lighter reds on hand that are best served slightly chilled. Last week I found a new bottle to add to the collection. Domaine Dupeuble Peré et Fils Beaujolais, imported by Kermit Lynch, is a great, lighter-bodied red that you will have no problem sipping over the summer.

Now the Fun Part- Tasting the Wine
Domaine Dupeuble Peré et Fils Beaujolais has aromas of red cherries, strawberries, and spices. The palate is light and lively. There are tastes of cranberries, strawberries, and raspberries surrounded by notes of herbs and spices. Balanced acidity and a great price point! Serve slightly chilled and enjoy the summer season!
My Wine Rating- B+
