Wine of the Week: 'Cote du Py'

The 2011 Jean Foillard Morgon Cote du Py goes well with grilled sausages, stews, a simple roast chicken or duck.MCT

2011 Jean Foillard Morgon "Ctte du Py." Region: Beaujolais, France; price: $32 to $39; style: rich and layered; what it goes with: grilled sausages, stews, a simple roast chicken or duck

I could drink a bottle of this Morgon "Ctte du Py" from Jean Foillard every week with the greatest of pleasure. How beautiful is the bottle, with its red wax seal?

The wine itself is soft and unctuous, tasting of prunes and dried cherries, a voluptuous cru Beaujolais made with painstaking care. The organically farmed vines from the famed "Ctte du Py" range from 10 all the way up to 90 years of age. This is a very serious Gamay.

It's beautiful with grilled sausages, stews, a simple roast chicken or duck.
