What is Beaujolais Nouveau?
It is a “young” (nouveau) red wine, made from the manual harvesting of the Gamay grape variety from the Beaujolais region of South-East France.
Although most red wines improve with ageing, Beaujolais Nouveau is destined for immediate consumption (or at most within the first year of its life), as it provides the ultimate emphasis on freshness, liveliness and intensity of aromas.
The glass is filled with aromas of strawberry and juicy cherry and the taste is fruity, with tannins absent due to the method of vinification of this wine.
Enjoy it cool at 12 degrees as an excellent accompaniment to dishes with charcuterie. Of course you can also enjoy it on its own.
