2012 Joseph Drouhin Beaujolais Nouveau

Recently released and available to be enjoyed just in time for the American Thanksgiving day, the Beaujolais Nouveau is a wine made of Gamay grapes, hand picked and undergoing carbonic maceration. Entire, unbroken grapes are placed in a controlled environment with no oxygen contact, while the fermentation process starts from within each grape. It is the first wine of the harvest and due to carbonic maceration, the wines show a very fruity profile with additional aromas of bananas, a low tannins presence and low alcohol. These are wines to be enjoyed over the short term for their fruity character.

2012 Joseph Drouhin  Beaujolais Nouveau

Bright ruby color. Bright red fruits, bananas, later red fruits jams and a slight dose of green coffee make up the medium intense nose. Low to medium body, watery, but fruity and lively on the palate. Short to medium finish, with a mild bitter-sweet flavor. Unpretentious but easy to drink. The nose is the strength of this wine.  12.5% alc (82/100)

Sample provided by the importer: Le Manoir. Available for 45 Ron.
