Everyday Wine in the City - Beaujolais-Villages by Louis Jadot

Beaujolais VillagesWhen I started reading about wines, though I don't like to admit, I became sort of a wine geek.  Years later, I had forgotten most of what I had read but a few things I can still remember. I recall that Beaujolais-Villages is a young wine and it is meant to be drunk that way.

For the pairing, we seared a couple of salmon fillets smothered with dried italian herbs, grilling spices with capers. The burnt flavor of the salmon's skin goes so well with the red burgundy.
