This is the time of year that grape growers and wine makers celebrate the end of the harvest. The grapes are all picked and on their way to becoming wine. In the French region of Beaujolais, they celebrate the end of the season with zest. A special young, refreshing wine is made to “party hardy” in a tradition dating back to the early 1900’s. Welcome to Beaujolais Nouveau, a bright, fruity wine made with the Gamay grape & ready to drink right now. Aromas of fresh fruit cocktail, candied cherries and strawberries fill the glass. This is a dry, low tannin wine that is great with turkey, poultry, ham or light appetizers. Plan your own harvest or holiday party with this delightful, easy drinking wine, but don’t wait…..these wines usually disappear quickly!
TRiO’s Somm recommends theGeorge Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau for $11.99 and the Jean Paul Brun L’Ancien VV (old vine) at $17.99.
