Muumuu is also a great word with consecutive u’s in it. But more importantly – I have good news! I have found the information that I previously thought was in a vacuum – which was becoming a black hole for a Beaujolais lover like me.
Next Thursday November 15th the LCBO will have the following wines available for the Beaujolais Nouveau release. I am going out on a limb and recommending based on past performance – results from the informal poll at my party will be forthcoming.
Duboeuf Gamay Nouveau – this is the one that I will purchase 6 bottles of right away, no questions asked as it will be amongst the most inexpensive and the juiciest of the Nouveau.
Novello Rosso Terre Di Chieti – I won’t buy any of this since I’ve invited Italians to my party and they can’t resist rubbing it in the face of the Frenchies.
Jeanjean Syrah Primeur – made with Syrah, probably good but I am a Beaujolais purist (maybe the only one in the world and I don’t care if Carolyn is making fun of me).
Primeur Syrah Merlot Pays D’Oc – this isn’t right, Merlot has no place at my Nouveau party.
Negrar Novello Del Veneto – it’s always a good Italian version, however, still banking on my Italian friends to “represent”
The Fool Reif Estate Gamay Nouveau VQA – I will try it again, Guelph loves the local underdog – but last year’s was awful
Mommessin Beaujolais Nouveau – Oui
Chateau des Charmes Generation Seven Gamay Nouveau VQA – Okay, this sounds like a promising local – I love everything that Chateau des Charmes does!
And from the VINTAGES program – two classics that cost more but are totally worth every penny. Hello LCBO – bring it!
