a.kitchen Pouring Special Cru Beaujolais Wines

The third Thursday in November brings the worldwide timed release of Beaujolais Nouveau, but there’s much more to that region of France than the short-fermented wine that receives all the marketing hype. To show off some of the area’s more mature offerings, a.kitchen in Rittenhouse is offering five- and three-ounce pours of three Beaujolais that are usually only available for order in bottles. For example, try a 2008 Moulin à Vent from Bruno Barbet - made from hand-harvested grapes - or winemaker Michael Tete’s Juliénas Prestige, also from 2008, a more powerful style of red made from old-growth wines and then barrel fermented. Prices range from $10-$17, and the special glasses will be on offer throughout the month (215-825-7030).
