Way more than what people expect. Beautiful young Gamay with quite a bit of complexity. Not just for November and Christmas, this is fabulous kept until Summer for barbecues so order enough and save some. You will thank us.

Don't want to take our word for it? We have a little bit left from last year's - give it a try</p>

Jerome Lacondemine makes Beaujolais Villages Nouveau from his youngest vines grown on south-facing slopes around the town of Beaujeu. A lot of work and care goes into the vineyard so this is not a just-fruity nouveau, this has more complexity. If you want more fruit, try the Deschamps Nouveau.

IMPORTANT: We order what people preorder with only a little bit extra stock, which usually sells out before the release date. I try to have enough to get to Christmas, but only once in the past five years have I managed. So please don't wait until the last minute

The Lacondemine Nouveau is produced with no added sulfites until bottling and minimal intervention, allowing for more complexity in the wine

A version with not sulfites even at bottling is available, check "Hommage a Philippe"

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
