Nouveau Beaujolais Day is November 20th, and this wine is most versatile in cooking and simply enjoying a glass of to sip on.
Refreshing & uncomplicated, our world needs more of these wines in France, South of Burgundy.
More serious varieties display the names on their labels of the particular villages from whence they came. To name a few, for instance, you have Moulin-à-Vent, Chénas, Côte de Brouilly & Brouilly.
These more serious types are appealing with such fresh aromas, deep fruity flavored in concentration that they match with Shepherd’s Pie. As well, they are happy to be served along with spicy dishes, such as Szechuan beef or curries.
These wines are best when chilled for under an hour refrigerated.
I’m always inclined to stick with drinking a tasty, sweetish wine, as the drier wines tend to be too acidic for my system. Beaujolais just seems the right one for me, as that style of sweet, fruity grapes is so compatible with simple meals, and it’s good to sip as well.
I’m quite prepared to purchase, drink & cook with Nouveau Beaujolais wine.
