Beautiful color- a light purple that almost sparkles
Wonderful nose of fresh strawberries and raisins
Smooth on the palate, but with a chalky and dry finish
I hope this is representative of the 2005 harvest because it's the best Beaujolias Nouveau I've ever had. The wine looks and smells terrific, although the chalky finish is a little bit drying in the mouth. It really shouldn't be over-analyzed, though, so I'm going to enjoy it for what it is. Beaujolias Nouveau is a fun wine for pure enjoyment and the celebration of the new harvest. By the way, I paid $10 for the pleasure of drinking this wine on the day of release. Raise a glass!
