Food, Wine & Just Good Living With SaucyJoe

It started with a love of food, wine & fun and blossomed into a maddening pursuit of the best recipes, techniques, grills, smokers, wines, crafted beers, rubs, marinades and sauces... We do more than play with our meat though -- we review and discuss all things cooking, drinking, reading, laughing and living at SaucyJoe's.

A Case for Beaujolais

Dorothy and John at WSJ (one of the few good things remaining since Rupert Murdoch's makeover) are eschewing their former mantra of "buy one expensive bottle" to treat a good friend, and going the route of grabbing a mixed case of something far more enjoyable on a day-to-day basis. Get them a mixed case of a simpler wine, Beaujolais, to be more specific.

This isn't the novelty of the Nouveau variety. That yearly tradition is upcoming soon, but an entirely different premise as it's the very youngest wine, and meant for the instant gratification of a quick drink around the holidays.

No, this idea centers on finding a batch of the regular Beaujolais and letting someone you like explore mutliple bottles of a wine equally at home w/ a cheese plate as macaroni and cheese. We'd opt for a nice white cheddar, and yes, GOOD crackers.

Here's their review of some of the tastier bottles they found in their quest.
