Le Beaujolais est arrivée en Ennis

Connoisseurs of the grape gathered with Anne and David  in The Gourmet Store, Ennis last night for a soirée to welcome the arrival of this year's Beaujolais Nouveau .  Our host,  David Lasbleye spoke to the blog's roving reporter about this important event in the oenophiles' calendar.  (See the link at the end ) I can vouch that this year's Beaujolais is very quaffable. Chanteur and pianist, Jerry McLauglin serenaded the gathering wonderfully well with a mellow mix of  chansons and some Percy French of course.  Gráine Cotter,  well known in trad circles performed an impressive set of jazz standards showing what versatile musician she is .  I was persuaded to play a few tunes on my fiddle  beginning with what else, La Vie en Rosé.   Wine and song and convivial company -what better way to spend and evening .
