Le Beaujolais Nouveau est arrivé!

21 Nov

DSC03060It’s the third Thursday in November, which means that fans of fresh, fruity harvest wines can once again slake their thirst with that quintessential quaffer, Beaujolais Nouveau. If you’ve been waiting impatiently (as have we) for this moment, wait no longer! Stop by the store and pick up some of Jean Baronnat’s bottling, which is some perfectly bright, bouncy, bodacious Beaujolais nouveau. $15
