Just to let you know that our Beaujolais Nouveau Evening was a real success
and our grateful thanks go to Keith and Margaret Templeton for the thought and effort
that that went into providing such a great combination of food and wine.
We enjoyed the novelty of the Beaujolais Nouveau but were then able to follow it with
four more Gamay based wines of increasing quality, including an excellent Brouilly, most
people’s first choice, and the star of the evening for several of us, a Côte Roannaise,
‘éclat de Granit’. All paired with an excellent selection of pâté, meats and cheeses.
Keith’s knowledgeable and, as usual, highly individual presentation brought the wines
and the areas alive for us and highlighted links to Cours La Ville.
We don’t usually have a raffle at events such as this but Children in Need evening could
not be allowed to go unsupported. I’m sure you’ll be pleased to know that thanks to the
generosity of members our simple raffle raised £200 which will be sent as a donation
from the members of Winslow Anglo French Twinning Association.
It was a great evening and many thanks to all who attended and everyone who helped
with the set-up and with the washing up!
