Public Service Announcement: It's Beaujolais Nouveau Day!!

By Chris

French regulations prohibit Beaujolais Nouveau from being sold until the third Thursday in November. That is today! This wine is only a few weeks old and is not a "fine wine." It is an inexpensive and quaffable wine, a fun drink that can be enjoyed by anyone to celebrate the harvest. Its meant to be consumed in copious quantities in the first year of its life.  Its a light-bodied and fruity wine made from Gamay grapes, Cost is around $10 a bottle.
Scott braves the elements to bring us the first taste of 2015 Beaujolais Nouveau.

Hmmm... Rain cape and no fenders? Not a very good combination for anything other than a staged photo shoot.

The wine bottle cages are pretty dang awesome. Nice outfit, as well.

The Ann Arbor Wednesday night group did a vertical tasting of about twelve Beaujoiais on Monday night. As a lot, they were all uniformally very good and well balanced. Pricing ranged between $9-$13 per bottle and some of the less expensive bottles were among the best.
