|Adam Bekhor rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
The 2009 Mommessin Domaine de Champ de Cour is an amazingly fresh red made 100% from the Gamay grape. It has intense flavours of strawberry, red cherries and raspberries. It also has a well integrated spice notes, smooth soft tannins and great acidity. The trick to getting the most out of this wine is to put it in ice bucket for 20 minutes. Chilled Beaujolais is always better than one at room temperature! I would recommend pairing this wine with pastrami, beef stir-fry or chicken lo-mien. As for cheese, I would recommend trying it with a mild cheese like a gouda.
At $19.95, the 2009 Mommessin Domaine de Champ de Cour is a steal. This is another beautiful wine from another underappreciated region…but that’s just my opinion.
