Deliciously intense Beaujolais
Beaujolais Villages Nouveau 2018 case, by Alpine Wines' classic Jerome Lacondemine.
As in 2018, the wine is produced with no added sulfites (except a small amount at bottling time) and minimal intervention, allowing for more complexity in the finished wine
A proper wine made in a month by a true craftsman - fun and very good.
This is a more structured nouveau, dark fruit and some tannins, and the Deschamps is "fruitier" - most people get some of both.
Philippe Deschamps is usually more on the classic pure crystalline fruit and Jérome Lacondémine's has a bit more tannins and grip. Both are super fruity this year.
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!

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.
