This is the first year I sample and drink that many different Beaujolais Nouveau bottles. Usually I sample one or two and that’s enough. I buy one or two bottles in all and most of the time I don’t even finish them but rather use them for cooking (Bolognese sauce).
But this year it’s the first time in a long time that the Beaujolais Nouveau is good —furthermore excellent for some. In short very pleasant in all cases — enjoyable. In addition to that, for the first year there was this rosé version which was a real treat and hopefully a real success among the Beaujolais Nouveau (and wine in general) drinkers. I wish to have it again next year.
I didn’t think it would be so great when I thought of tasting and posting my first entry about the Beaujolais Nouveau on this blog and I certainly didn’t envision that I would post so many of them.
But that’s what happened because the Beaujolais Nouveau was so good and enjoyable this year. Let’s hope it will be the case for the years to come also et ne boudons pas notre plaisir (let’s not deny ourselves).
