WHAT: Pisse-Dru Beaujolais Blanc (white) Rating: NNN
WHERE: Beaujolais, France
WHY: The name of this wine confirms that people had an entirely different approach to marketing in the 19th century. In the present, it’s a useful addition to your list of old reliables, a solid pick-it-up-on-the-way-home-from-work wine. If you like Chardonnay (and why wouldn’t you?), then this one’s a good, affordable bet.
PRICE: 750 ml/$11.90
AVAILABILITY: At selected liquor stores (product #276865)
