On Thursday November 18th be prepared to Celebrate the Beaujolais Nouveau 2010!
AT ONE MINUTE PAST MIDNIGHT on the third Thursday of each November from little villages and towns north of Lyon in the Beaujolais region, over a million cases of Beaujolais Nouveau begin their journey through a sleeping France to Paris for immediate shipment to all parts of the world (New Zealand being the first country in the world, every year to enjoy a glass of Beaujolais Nouveau). Banners proclaim the good news:
“Le Beaujolais Nouveau est arrivé! “The New Beaujolais has arrived!”
Following on from the exceptional 2009, the 2010 again hits the spot. Everything a Beaujolais should be. “The colour is fantastic – a beautiful, brilliant hue. The aromas are already remarkable, quite expressive and complex.
A real confit of blackcurrant, blueberry, blackberry, black cherry, and kirsch, intermingled with violet cocoa, coffee, pepper, licorice and warm spices – there is a sumptuous beauty to this wine, a quintessential Beaujolais.”
