L’Ancien Beaujolias Nouveau Jean Paul Brun Terres Dorees 2006 wine review by (PB)
I have never seen this Nouveau anywhere so when I spied it in Boston for $11, I grabbed it. It has a real purple pour which it should in light of it being fresh squeezed form the vines as all nouveau is but others tend to be more cherry in color.
The bouquet of this wine was really nice with strawberries and a little raspberry touch with bubble gum—I’m serious—in the background. It is classic Gamay in the mouth with solid structure, good flavors and just plain delicious. Better than the ubiquitous DuBoeuf Nouveau you see everywhere. Grab one of you see it and slosh it down; its refreshing! Raise a glass.
