Fluid: Le Beaujolais Nouveau

November 18, 2011

Every year in late November, Beaujolais Nouveau – the latest vintage of Beaujolais wine – is released. In the past, this was met with a frenzy from wine drinkers, rushing to the store to buy cases of the stuff – known to be cheap, delicious, and limited in quantity. But in the past ten years, quality has declined significantly, and now BNV can often be met with a sniff of disdain.

For those that remember the glory days, check out this Wall Street Journal article. As you can see above, I’ve got my own bottle of the stuff, purchased from my beloved Formaggio Kitchen. I’ll be trying it with my family next Thursday, here’s hoping it’s as good as they remember.
