Nouvea est arrivé It is that time, Beaujolais nouveau!!

by Russ Anderson on November 20, 2015

BeaujolaisThis is not the wine most people have encountered!!

These wines in the store are from some of your favorite Beaujolais producers, Jean Paul Brun and Pierre Chermette. Each makes delicious wines from several of the Crus in Beaujolais. But in the tradition of fun get togethers with friends and delicious wine, they also make nouveau which they now call En Primeur.

This vin de l’année was traditionally made to celebrate the end of the harvest. It is a fun way to get a taste of the new vintage and celebrate the coming holidays. Traditionally, en primeur wine has to be sold in the same year of its harvest. Last year the wines sold out in a few weeks. ​

These are delicious wines and just plain fun. This wine is not trying to wow you with depth and power, this wine is trying to motivate you to roast a chicken, have several friends over and enjoy each other’s company. They are great for Thanksgiving and ​​I can’t think of a bottle in the store that provides more fun! And, considering the recent events in Paris, it is also a chance to drink in solidarity with France.

The reds are $16 and the rosé​​ (in limited supply) is $15, mix and match a six pack among the 4 wines and I will knock 10%.

Call or email if you would like some and I will set them aside for you.
