For this case I have opted for a Fleurie, perhaps the most famous of the Beaujolais Crus. This example from Loron shows all the soft juicy almost bubble gum like character so typlical the the local grape, Gamay used to make the wine. Choosen for our summer cases,  the softness of this wine means that it can be served lightly chilled and matched to the fuller fleshy fish based dishes.
