Thorin Domaine Les Tours de Montmelas Beaujolais-Villages 2011

This Beaujolais-Villages is not in the same league as some recent tastings from the region (Morgon and Brouilly) and even outside of the region (Beechworth), but then it's close to one third of the price of those wines.  There's some value to be had here.  A deep purple in colour, this wine has bright aromatics of red currants.  The palate is fresh and lively with medium to high acidity, and flavours of red currants and earth.  A perfectly pleasant wine that is suitable for day to day drinking.  Acceptable
