Review: Beaujolais Nouveau 2014


Want an affordable and delicious wine for every day, then Beaujolais Nouveau 2014 is the wine for you. A bottle of this good stuff runs around $9.99.  It’s a young red wine made from 100% Gamay grapes hand-picked in the Beaujolais province of France. The aromas in the wine go toward the fruity side with wild strawberries, raspberries, cherry and red currents.
It is a light wine, but there is a lot of depth in the wine which makes it a wonderful choice to go with various meals.  It will go great with your take out delights or crock-pot delicacies that you whip up. I also say pair it with your burger of choice for a beaujolais and burger night. It is suggested that you serve this wine chilled to really get the burst of the flavor.
Winery notes: “Deep radiant ruby color. Intensely perfumed nose, offering a which of richly concentrated jam-like fruits. Refreshing, fruity, and perfectly balanced on the palate with young and silky tannin.”
Georges Duboeuf boasts itself as the #1 selling Beaujolais in the world. After one sip you will taste why. Mr. Duboeuf is the one who made beaujolais a big deal around the world. Each year billions of dollars are made off of this type of wine. In fact every third Thursday in November, it’s Beaujolais Nouveau Day in France.
While sipping this wine I suggest pairing it with the scent of lavender, even better if you can get your hands on French lavender to have a whole francophile experience. Sipping on beaujolais while the delightful smell of lavender is in the air will take your senses on a French adventure. No passport is required. Santé!
