Beaujolais as you might or might not know is a Gamay Noir. I’ve to confess I’ve not been a fan of plenty of Ontario Gamays, robust for me to confess 🙂 Beaujolais Nouveau are fruity wines, fermented for brief intervals, meant to be drunk younger which this isn’t. Beaujolais-Village wines are SUPER delicate to temperature. I did two experiments. The primary began with the wine at room temperature. At room temp it displayed some good black berry notes on the mid palate with some good agency acidity and tannins. We had the wine with trout and have been on the patio and the wine warmed up. Because it warmed up it grew to become softer, and it grew to become fruiter. The wine is good and dry. I’d give it an -88.

For the second experiment I did what I used to be informed and chilled it for 20 minutes. Straight out of the fridge it had some good darkish fruit however had some good clean tannins and end. This time I saved the bottle within the AC home to let it heat up slower. The hotter it grew to become the extra the fruit got here out and the softer the end. This wine has a VERY slender profile from a temperature perspective. Too heat and it’s bland. Too chilly and it’s bland. Slightly three bears occurring.
