Young Beaujolais producers' event@Chez Boris: 28.

Chez Boris, 17 Boulevard Sarrail, Montpellier   

Last night I went to a relaxed and enjoyable event organised by a group of young Beaujolais producers: 

Château de Lavernette
Domaine Chasselay
Domaine des Grandes Bruyères
Domaine Dominique Cornin
Domaine de la Soufrandière
Domaine Les Bertrand

Domaine Saint-Cyr

Domaine Thillardon   

A range of Beaujolais was shown including some old bottles going to a 1989 Domaine Saint-Cyr, which was showing well. There was also a selection of magnums from the 2009 vintage and a selection of Beaujolais Blanc. 

Here are a few photos from the event: 

Louise Hurren (Languedoc Outsiders)

Mélina Condy, Inter Beaujolais

...and I thought Michel Smith (Les 5 du Vin) was enjoying the wines, 
especially the magnum of Morgon 2009
