The new wine shipped from France and we gathered with friends old and new. Beaujolais nouveau got a terrible reputation a couple of years ago when the harvest was subpar. This year, it regains its status as a wonderful way to taste the raw wine.
We tried two types (see pictures below) and I preferred the bottle on the right: more structure and body. The first was fruitier and lighter with a great clean taste for a summer picnic.
I really am too busy to go out on a weeknight, but in point of fact I feel that these events are what makes life. It’s so easy to blink and miss weeks passing.
Ainsley was trying to drink the wine, too, and really loved drinking water from a wine glass. She also tried (and loved) goat cheese and gâteau chocolat.
Enjoy the pictures!
