Delivered November 21st

Philippe Deschamps is usually more on the classic pure crystalline fruit and Jérome Lacondémine's often has a bit more tannins and grip.

For a small team like us, getting all these orders out in time is also a bit crazy. But we love it! And so do our customers - our Nouveau is exceptional. Pick from the classic fruity Philippe Deschamps or the more intense Didier Lacondemine. Most people get both!

2018 was amazing and 2019 should be too. The volume is down but both producers are happy and proud.

Serving Suggestions:

Serve Beaujolais Nouveau slightly cool, it enhances the fruitiness and brings out the summer breeze feeling of the wine.
A perfect wine with barbecue, tomato based pasta dishes, roast chicken, spicy mexican beans

In Depth:

The tradition started in 1951 - prior to that Beaujolais could not be released before December 15th.

When the rules were relaxed to November 15th, a group of creative winemakers decided to run a race to Paris to be the first wine of the year on the table of restaurants. The rest is history.

  • Beaujolais is made from Gamay. We love Gamay at Alpine Wines and think it is sorely underrated.
  • Beaujolais Nouveau is actually a perfect companion to summer barbecues! It's a shame the Southern Hemisphere don't do a Gamay primeur as it'd be perfect timing... Thankfully our Nouveau easily keeps past Summer, just buy an extra case.
  • Beaujolais nouveau is often produced using a different type of fermentation than that used in most wines, called carbonic (or whole berry) fermentation. This makes a low tannin wine that is very fruity. Ours are only part carbonic
  • We have chosen winemakers who focus on expressing the fruit in the wine, with low or no added yeast, producing more typical red fruit and grape juice flavours in the wine.
  • Designer yeast can bring out very exotic flavours in Nouveau. We don't have any of these types of wines but they are very popular in Asia.

 

Beaujolais Nouveau (2019)

0.75

tasting notes:

from Burgundy Report November 2019 "Medium colour. A modest volume of aroma, but deep and attractively floral too. A fine grain of tannin supports a wine of fresh attack but depth of fruit to balance. A good big mouthful of fine Beaujolais here."

My take: There's quite a bit of violet for us, with juicy red fruit and a nice touch of minerality. Very moreish and easy drinking.

Beaujolais Villages Nouveau (2019)

0.75

tasting notes:

From Burgundy Report, November 2019 "Jérôme Lacondemine, Coeur de Raisin
Medium, medium-plus colour. A cliché but attractive Beaujolais nose. Mouth-filling, cool fruit, really juicy, it’s long too. I think this more than excellent!"

My take: On the cool dark fruit, black cherries and blackberries. Nice edge of tannins and long finish. Lovely but more serious and will probably come out of its shell more over time. Buy more and drink throughout the year

Really impressed

Beaujolais Villages Nouveau 2019 Jérome Lacondemine

Received my order of Beaujolais Nouveau in good time and perfect condition, thanks,
Really impressed by the new labelling and cap on the Lacondemine Villages Nouveau - and the wine inside more than lives up to the bright fun label!
Thanks for the best BN I have supped in a long time and for the excellent service.

2018 As good as ever

Beaujolais Villages Nouveau 2019 Jérome Lacondemine

Thank goodness that Alpine Wines still sell Beaujolais Nouveau ( I do not know anybody else who does these days ). This year's vintage seems as good as ever and hopefully it will stand the test of time as well as last year's ( the last bottle of which we drank last month )

Regarding the 2017

Beaujolais Nouveau 2019, Philippe Deschamps

The wine was well received as “much better than I remember from years ago” “not as weak and blackcurranty as in the past” and “very drinkable with cheese” Sorry, my locals are not great wine buffs. Thanks again.

2018 A serious Beaujolais ?

Beaujolais Villages Nouveau 2019 Jérome Lacondemine

Wow, what a difference the heatwave this summer made. No bubblegum and tart fruit this year, but much more complex and chewy. Still very fruity but with a backbone that will add longevity I'm sure .

Chateauneuf de Beaujolais for 2018?

Beaujolais Nouveau 2019, Philippe Deschamps

The heat this summer certainly added a serious note to this normally light, bubblegum flavoured Beauj. Still very fruity but with a long, creamy aftertaste. Will probably keep a bit longer too.
