can't stand the stuff myself - but always a reason to go out - even if you order a nice bourdeaux instead!

I was at the grossiste the other day and I had the opportunity to try it.  I'm afraid Peter is right, it is horrible stuff, and I tried them all, right up to the most expensive and, supposedly, the best of the bunch.

On the other hand, one must commend the growers on one of the greatest publicity stunts in business.  A supposed race is created (when, in fact, it's already in the wholesalers) and everyone rushes to try this year's "Noveau".  It really is a most brilliant piece of marketing.

Needless to write, "Noveau" should read, "Nouveau"

Blame the wine Tigger... ;-)

No Stevies, it's the whisky that I needed to kill the taste of the wine.

hope your not driving tomorrow....!!!!!!

A good point Steve.  I always find a layby or wait for a red traffic light.


stevies-179765 1385161315

That's a major problem...!!!! you be good.

Tigger-459388 1385228966

Only joking Steve.  I have that black sense of humour.  Actually, I deplore any form of drinking and driving.

I hate to disagree with you all but, I found a very nice Beaujolais Nouveau in Nicolas. Cost a little more than the usual, 6.90 Eur, but was good enough for me to go back and buy another bottle. Of course, I had the opportunity to try a few in the shop first, and indeed there were a couple of not such good ones.

Ok Brian, i will go and try that one.. thanks...

Tigger-459388 1385488937

Hey Brian, it's good that you give your point of view.  We are all different.  As the saying goes, "à chacun son goût".
