Le Beaujolais Nouveau Est Arrivé!
So, about a week ago the new Bojo arrived. In his sweet red wine suit. Midnight on November 19th to be exact (or historically the third Thursday of November). Not really that big of a deal but it's said that this year's vintage ain't so bad. At 87 points from Wine Spectator it's probably one of the better ones in recent memory.
I've never been that much of a fan of this wine or the gamay grape from which it is made...a little too fruity for my palate but I am all about anything that turns a day into a celebratory nod of toasting our French friends. Best served around 50°-57° F.
For thirteen bucks, maybe an hour in the fridge, and a taste for the fruity type of wine it's not a bad way to kick-off a pre-cursor to our traditional American Thanksgiving feast.
