It’s also a Beaujolais-Villages Nouveau. Red and 13% vol.
It’s the last of that long series of Beaujolais Nouveau I enjoyed (really enjoyed in the full sense of the word) this year. We shouldn’t go past Christmas or at least past December of the same year with the Beaujolais Nouveau, as it is a wine not ment at all for aging. I actually tasted and drank this last one at the very beginning of January as I had found it randomly at the local cheese and fresh pasta shop in Golfe-Juan, my parent’s town. For 5 Euros a bottle, it was impossible to pass.
In glass, it has a deep purple color leaning towards dark blue. Very fluid and liquid, no thickness and no legs on the glass walls.
The nose is redcurrant, red fruit jelly or cooked / stewed red fruit (compote). Mainly redcurrant, blackcurrant and blackberry, almost a good grape jelly (not the concord / methyl anthranilate chemical type).
In mouth, a taste of redcurrant jelly, a nice acidity and refreshing. The mouth is entirely redcurrant and redcurrant jelly. It is also a little fizzy.
In short this is an excellent wine ! Maybe the best of all the Beaujolais I tasted this year. No regret for this late and impulse buy, furthermore for such a good price.
We had 2 bottles of this wine that we enjoyed with our daily ordinary meals.
