Beaujolais Nouveau has arrived
It is announced as a great vintage for this year 2017; it is the domain of Gry-Sablon in Emeringes in the Rhône, that I have chosen to present and participate in the Beaujolais Nouveau festival. This Beaujolais village nouveau… .the secret of this cuvée… .: its plots date back in part to the creation of the exploitation, more than 100 years ago with the grandfather of Mr. Domnique Morel in the town. With its beautiful ruby color, this wine expresses pleasant notes of red fruits, grapes, blackcurrant, also notes of bananas and even English candies; it is supple and easy to drink on the palate.
Beaujeu capital of Beaujolais
Made from the Gamay grape variety, Beaujolais Nouveau is the result of long experience, exclusive know-how and a delicate harvest. A true artisan wine, it is produced with care and precision with respect for tradition and the land. Its traditional vinification reveals all the personality of a unique wine which is ideally tasted slightly chilled.
Beaujolais Nouveau is a ritual, a great pagan and popular celebration; universal, it adapts to all countries and flows into all cultures. Simple and unpretentious, Beaujolais Nouveau can go well with most dishes and cuisines. It is shared among friends. Like all wines, it should be consumed in moderation.
Beaujolais king in Beaujeu
It’s the feast of Beaujolais, all over the world from midnight on the 3rd Thursday of November, that is to say November 16th, the world honors this wine of character. All over France associations take advantage of this event to taste it in the first days of its sale. Beaujolais Nouveau have a bright red color, limpid and brilliant, ruby with purple reflections, a fruity nose, often with different tastes which are more or less appreciated; its contents of red fruits vary according to the rains or the drought. Sales will explode. Everything started in Beaujeu, capital of Beaujolais, but it is since 1985 that the 3rd Thursday in November was chosen to launch this world celebration. Half of the production is reserved for Asia and in particular for Japan and South Korea. But it is the Japanese who taste this Beaujolais before us.
