Beaujolais Nouveau used to be very popular years ago...
Was in decline, but looks like it became back a little bit popular. this year in London for the 17th of November, there were many parties for the "Beaujolais"nouveau night.
Beaujolais il a wine made from the Gamay grape, in the Beaujolais area. Some Beaujolais Villages and some Crus are outstanding. The Beaujolais nouveau is a young wine that is made not to last but to be drunk young, first wine of the new vintage.
So I was at the Baden Powell house, tasting this Beaujolais as per as an evening organised by some french associations (Corsica and Auvergne).
We managed to get a picture of the wine tasted. Not too bad really for a beaujolais nouveau.
