Live Large, Think Beaujolais

Find DFW’s most delectable fare when France meets Texas to celebrate the Beaujolais harvest.

Guests expect to fill their souvenir glasses with the freshest Beaujolais that ever passed their lips.

And there's plenty of grown-up Beaujolais, too. Beaujolais-Villages. 100% Chardonnay Grand Clos de Loyse, Beaujolais Blanc from Château des Jacques, and Beaujolais cru appellations. Their secret is their charm. Congeniality with an immense range of food. Just ask François Chandou.

For this 25th anniversary of the country’s biggest Beaujolais party premium Texas vintages will square off against les français. Varietals the French will recognize.

Think you could identify Becker Merlot Reserve 2005, aged 18 months in American white oak, Brennan Syrah 2006 and McPherson Tre Colore 2006, a blend of Carignan, Mourvèdre and Viognier, among a Moulin-à-Vent 2006, Morgon 2007 and Beaujolais Villages 2007?
