2010 Joseph Drouhin Beaujolais Nouveau

On the third Thursday of every November, there’s an actual wine holiday – the release of Beaujolais Nouveau!   One of my favorite days of the year   :-)    Beaujolias is a fruit forward, light wine that is best when consumed young.   It is easy to drink, and pairs well with – yup, you guessed it – Thanksgiving turkey.   I had the privelege of trying this year’s release at one of my favorite local wine bars – Residual Sugar (love, love the name!) – http://www.residualsugarwine.com/

The Joseph Drouhin Beaujolais is no exception…   light cherry and berries and a bit of rose petal on the nose.   The nose is very pretty!   The midpalate is quite juicy, balanced acidity on the finish with more bite than I expected.   Delicious paired with spicy cured meat.
