Food & Wine Pairing – Jean Marc Brignot Biojô Nuovo ;-)


Crêt de Ruyère/Cathy & Jean-Luc Gauthier Biojô Nuovo 😉 – Beaujolais Nouveau 2009
Wine maker:  Jean Marc Brignot
100% Gamay
Burgundy (Beaujolais), France
12.5% Alcohol
Price (approx) in Norway:  130,- NOK ($20)


Slow cooked pork neck
Tomato salad, capers and onion
Pork juice and fresh herbs

What? Serving a Beaujolais Nouveau in June?! I’ve done stranger things, but I have to tell you that this Nouveau needed some time in bottle after release (released in Norway in March of this year).  Gorgeous, healthy fruit give this wine an incredible structure that stands up nicely with this course. Ripe acidity keeps up with the pork fat and the mild tannins clean up nicely. A really surprisingly good pairing, and just right for Spring!

  1. Do you remeber Balsamico Braised Veal Cheeks with Polenta and Biojô Nuovo, last time in Krakow? Jean-Marc rules 🙂

    You are very right to do so. I have some 2 years old very good as light summer wine! Also the Octobre from Soif du Mal and the Telquel stay alive and well. Yesterday I had Joblot Givry Cellier Moines 2001, you know that? Slight hint of wood but went down (to) fast, €22, impressive for the price.

    I don’t know the Joblot Givry. I love it when wines go down too fast 😉
