Quick Picks 4

by Tim Elliott on November 16, 2006

Another Quick Picks podcast celebrating both my birthday and the release of Beaujolais Nouveau today. My favorite from my tasting today is featured.

Louis Tete, Beaujolais Nouveau 2006 ($13) – Clear ruby/purple in color with aromas of strawberry, cherry and banana. In the mouth the wine is juicy with wild cherry and strawberry jam flavors finishing with good acidity and soft tannins. Textbook Nouveau from a reliable shipper. Drink with your Thanksgiving turkey and fixings.

12.5% ABV
Natural cork closure
Score: 82

    Happy Birthday Tim!!!

    I agree, the Louis Tete is year on year the best fo the Nouveau’s. I had a bottle of Bouchard Aine & Fils that was full of cherry and strawberry aromas with spicy/jammy taste and almost non-existent tannins.
