69 or 'soixante-neuf' as we say? It's Beaujolais country and the official number for the department of the Rhone. It also happens to be the year I was born into this wonderful wine region. So for me, 69 is unforgettable and I hope it will become so for you too, once you taste it. Beaujolais 69 is all about pleasure - from the pretty colour and fresh fruity aromas to the satin-smooth mouthfeel. Enjoy it gently chilled between 10 and 12C, on its own, with simple home cooked meals ... or perhaps as a little nightcap.
