Many discovered this wine last year and continued to ask for it well after it was gone. Like several of the wines in the store, this is not the wine many people expect. It is a bottle of fun and enjoyment, not overly serious but seriously tasty, and like so many things in the store, not what everyone at first expects.
For years, the consumer’s concept of Beaujolais was dominated by the nouveau craze. This became more about a brand than a wine and the wines slowly tipped to more and more manufactured in style. There is still a lot of mass produced Beaujolais Nouveau on the market, but that is not what we sell at The Caviste.
We sell a low intervention, traditionally-made “nouveau” or “en primeur” bottling that packs a whole lot of fun. Imagine tending the grill on a cool fall evening as friends come over. It is perfect for easy weekend get togethers and pairs nicely with left over turkey sandwiches in November. On top of that it is bargain priced at $16.
This is a pre-sale, with the wines arriving in early November. If you buy at least 3 bottles, I will discount them 10%, if you buy a case or more, I will discount them 15%. So, stock up a little for a fun drinking wine that helps reset one’s understanding of this style of wine. (Trust me, you are going to want a few bottles of this around the house.)
