Beaujolais Day Tasting

This Thursday, November 21, Wyatt’s is offering a free tasting featuring Beaujolais Nouveau Holiday Wine Releases.

An annual favorite, this French first harvest varietal is perfect for holiday celebrations and feasts. We will be sampling the following selections:

Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau: Vibrant red fruits flavors of strawberries and currants show on the palate with an intense perfume that make this wine a perfect accompaniment for cheese, charcuterie, and traditional holiday fare. Serve slightly chilled.

Mommessin Beaujolais Nouveau: An enjoyable Cuvee with a deep purple robe in the glass and a nose of plum, violets, & lavender. Flavors of plum, pomegranate, and blueberry were followed with a textured minerality in the finish and a touch of vanilla.

La Perliere Beaujolais Villages: On the nose, one gets notes of raspberry and cherry. On the palate, flavors of smoke, mineral, and strawberry are present with soft tannins. This is a medium-bodied wine with a short, peppery finish.

La Perliere Morgon Cru Beaujolais: A full-bodied, powerful, and meaty wine, La Perliere Morgon features a deep garnet color with flavors of ripe cherries and stone fruits with rounded tannins and earthy notes. Try it with spicy tuna, roast fowl or lamb.

All of these special seasonal releases are on sale!

Tasting hours for this free event on Friday, November 21, 2019, will be from 4:00-6:45 pm, at Wyatt’s Outlaw Saloon, in the back of the store.

Ring in the Holiday Season with Beaujolais Nouveau!

Beaujolais Nouveau Day is marked in France on the third Thursday in November (Nov. 21) with fireworks, music, and festivals. Under French law, the wine is released at 12:01 a.m., just weeks after the wine’s grapes have been harvested. Parties are held throughout the country and further afield to celebrate this first wine of the season.

Beaujolais Nouveau is meant to be drunk young. Most vintages should be consumed by the following May after its release. However, in excellent vintages (such as the 2000) the wine can live much longer and can be enjoyed until the next harvest rolls around.

The region of Beaujolais is known for its fabulous food. The famed Paul Bocuse restaurant is just minutes from the heart of Beaujolais, as is Georges Blanc’s. These great restaurants have plenty of Beaujolais Nouveau on their wine lists. The wine goes well with either high cuisine or Friday night’s pizza.

An annual favorite, these French first harvest varietals are perfect for holiday parties or Thanksgiving feasts:

Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau: Vibrant red fruits flavors of strawberries and currants show on the palate with an intense perfume that make this wine a perfect accompaniment for cheese, charcuterie, and traditional holiday fare. Serve slightly chilled.

La Perliere Beaujolais Villages: On the nose, one gets notes of raspberry and cherry. On the palate, flavors of smoke, mineral, and strawberry are present with soft tannins. This is a medium-bodied wine with a short, peppery finish.

Grab a bottle and see what all the hubbub is about for yourself. Locally, you can find these limited edition, celebrated wines at larger, independently owned wine shops, like Wyatt’s Wet Goods, that offer you a superior selection from around the globe and an experienced staff that will help you find the perfect bottle for every occasion.

Drouhin Beaujolais Nouveau: This wine has a dark red color, with deep bluish tints.  Juicy cherry and strawberry flavors burst through the creamy midpalate, with licorice drop and floral details giving expression to the finish. Light tannins.

Domaine Rochette Beaujolais Villages Nouveau: A bit weightier than most other Beaujolais wines, this one carries a savory edge of grilled herb and fresh earth lined with boysenberry and cherry fruit. Ample sweet spice and zesty elements linger into the tangy, lightly grippy finish.
