Joseph Drouhin Domaine des Hospices de Belleville Fleurie 2014 ($26) and Morgon 2014 ($21.50)--Properly aged Beaujolais are starting to blunt the inane reputation of Beaujolais Nouveau, and these two examples from Joseph Drouhin show all the color, fruit and time-will-tell ripeness that is achieved after slow fermentation and six months of aging before bottling. The Morgon is lovely for springtime dishes like baby lamb, while the somewhat fleshier Fleurie, from the most southern terroir of Beaujolais, takes well to dishes like roast pork with prunes.
Wineries In India Nobilo Icon Marlborough Pinot Noir 2014 ($19)--New Zealand Pinot Noirs can be lighter than Australian examples among New World wines, and can give a better bang for the buck. In this case you get a solid, well-knit NZ-PN with plenty of cherry flavors of a kind the grape should deliver without the inky sweetness, and the 13.5% alcohol is just where it should be.
The Wine Society Of India Matanzas Creek Winery Jackson Park Vineyard Merlot 2012 ($60)--While its price pushes the upper limits for American merlot, Matanzas Creek has been delivering excellent examples for three decades from the cooler Bennett Valley in Sonoma. Winemaker Marcia Monahan-Torres uses a clone from the illustrious Château Pétrus of Bordeaux and it shows this silky red wine.

T he alcove looks like a shrine. But instead of a religious relic, the focus of attention is a wine bottle. A sign reads: “1st Place 1976 Paris Tasting”. On the left, are judges’ scores; to the right, a page from the June 7, 1976 issue of Time magazine. Beneath the Judgment of Paris headline, the story tells of California going glass-to-glass with Burgundy and Bordeaux. The judges were French; the tasting was blind. The victors? California. Napa Valley wines took first place for both reds and whites. The bottle on display is the winning chardonnay, a 1973 Chateau Montelena.

Vineyards In India For a change of pace, we rented bikes. “Cycle clockwise; then you never have to cross a main road,” Kellie at Napa Valley Bike Tours advised. Pedalling out of Yountville, we passed gardens with white picket fences, farms, vineyards and wild fennel galore. Six miles later, we turned into Clos du Val, our third member of the exclusive Paris Tasting team. The name and pétanque court nod to France, but the hedonistic cabanas are pure California. Overlooking vines where merlot grapes hang heavy in the sunshine, city folk lounged on sofas enjoying wines served in crystal carafes. Less private, but equally relaxing, were the picnic tables under the olive trees.
