Joseph Drouhin Beaujolais Nouveau Primeur 2008 wine review by Billy

Nose: very fruity nose of cherry cola and macerated day old strawberries
Palate: light feel with strong acid structure and some tannins
Finish: short and a bit metallic

Hooray for Beaujolais Nouveau day! The Primeur 2008 Beaujolais Nouveau from Drouhin this year is a solid table wine that is easy to drink and easy going. It meets expectations without letting down. Shows good character. I paid $16 for the bottle.

You sure it wasn't day and a half old strawberries you were smelling???
$16? Holy cow--that's the most expensive I've seen a BN. What tha? I would be hard pressed to pay that for a Nouveau; I hope it brought a commensurate measure of joie de vie! :)
