Seattle Wine Blog

This blog is dedicated to commentary on all aspects of wine, especially short entries to help you find the best wines without the usual hype and spin. These are my frank, independent opinions, usually based on tasting wine at a public event, off the shelf or at the winery.

Beaujolais Nouveau

The 2005 arrived in Seattle with all the usual hype and fanfare. Personally, I prefer the juice of freshly crushed grapes. Seriously, if you ever have the chance to taste the free run juice when it has just begun to ferment, check it out - tastes kind of like slightly sweet refreshing grape cider. Beaujolais Nouveau is the first taste of the vintage and does give some indication of what's to come. Nouveau is fun, but if you want something a little more interesting wait a few months for Beaujolais Villages, and wine from the various villages of the Beaujolais region such as Fleurie.
