Beaujolais Nouveau (ssshhhhhh)

We went to a bar in Dijon tonight and were offered a bottle of Beaujolais Nouveau, 2 days before the official launch. The barman had seen us coming and charged us a silly price, but we got to try it before any should really be sold. I’m unimpressed that this launch date is not somehow better protected or respected. I suppose such systems are always wide open to abuse. And the wine? Well, Beaujolais Nouveau……full of banana and bubblegum – good to have but not a drink I’d regularly choose.
