wow - gamay on a warm afternoon

I recently read someone lamenting the warm weather as it prompted them to set aside the reds in favor of chilled whites. Oh, wait - that was me! But why fall into such "rule traps"? Drink what you like fer cryin out loud! So if warm weather means turning to lighter fare, maybe a light fruity red is in order. Pinot is a given. Gamay is great too and not as pricey. Here is a cru Beaujolais from Brouilly that is a great example. Perfect with coconut curried lentils and pan seared jerk snapper. The fruit driven juicy berry flavors are a nice balance to the warm (not hot) spices.
