Wine review: Beaujolais Villages Nouveau Louis Tête

16 11 2012

Le Beaujolais Nouveau est arrivé!

Beaujolais Nouveau  is a red wine made from Gamay grapes produced in the Beaujolais region of France. It is the most popular vin de primeur, fermented for just a few weeks before being released for sale on the third Thursday of November

Beaujolais Villages Nouveau Louis Tête is the only Nouveau wine which is available at Alko. Reflects the declining appreciation of Beaujolais Nouveau wines. Remember that earlier there were at least two alternatives to choose from.

Appearance – light red, translucent, like sangria

Aroma – strawberry/rasberry, some alcohol behind

Sensation/Taste – almost like rose wine, bland taste, first taste makes mouth rough

Facts and figures:

Alcohol: 12,5% by volume
Extract: 26 g/l
Acidity: 6 g/l
Energy: 80 kcal/100 ml (330 kJ/100 ml)
Closure: metal screw cap


Suitable for Beaujolais Nouveau parties and for summer aperitif with ice (but it does not stand to drink until next summer)
