So...today's the day the Beaujolais Nouveau arrives. Will it be nasty, or just a kicked-up grape juice? According to Wine Weekly:
How is this year’s Beaujolais Nouveau?
Vignerons in Beaujolais report that the 2007 vintage will offer full ripe fruit and a round body and will be the best Nouveau in several years. Of course, wine producers will always promote a new wine positively, but I think we can trust that 2007 Nouveau will be fresh, ripe, and fruity. We’ll know for sure in just a few days.
A friend and I will be going out sampling this evening...should be fun!
