For sure we associate light reds with Summer patio and picnic drinking, however, they have other moments. Such as last Tuesdayâ€™s curry, Wednesdayâ€™s chicken risotto, and tonightâ€™s pan-fried salmon fillets. Bouchardâ€™s 19 vintage has a bigger than usual hit of flavour, comes in a handy screw cap â€“ and itâ€™s on sale. I highly recommend chilled glasses of Beaujolais to beat the lock-down-blues. At this price, Iâ€™m going to invest in a stash for the summer picnics and lunches.
