Beaujolais Nouveau: Today’s the day

Today marks the release of the 2008 Beaujolais Nouveau.

Many oenophiles say the quality of the 3rd-Thursday-of-November-spectacle doesn’t measure up to the hype. And this year’s crop is particularly weak.

Nonetheless, I’m planning to buy a bottle. The labels are pretty. It’s a fun way to celebrate the beginning of the end of the year. Also, I enjoy tracking where I’ve been when I’ve tasted past vintages of Beaujolais Nouveau. The first was in college.

  1. I have mine to go with Thanksgiving dinner!

  2. So how was it?

  3. I was very pleasantly surprised with how good both of this year’s varieties tasted.

    And having them alongside delicious Thanksgiving appetizers surely helped.

    What did you think? Did you have any?
