Le Beaujolais Nouveau n’est pas arrivé ici
My God it’s difficult to argue with Alder over at Vinography about his feelings regarding Beaujolais Nouveau. I had been thinking for a few days about the many ways in which I really don’t like this annual celebration of …. what? I’m not even sure.
I do know this: I don’t like Beaujolais Nouveau.
That said, if you are looking for a reason to put up with the annual flogging of this stuff let me suggest this. It is symbolic of a particular vintage being the first wines out of the block.
Yet as we know, symbolism can be very overrated.
I am SO with you on this one: the beaujolais nouveau emperor has no clothes.
