Deliciously intense Beaujolais
Beaujolais Villages Nouveau 2023, by Alpine Wines' star producer Jerome Lacondemine.
This is a more structured nouveau, dark fruit and some tannins. A rare few find it too serious but most love it and find it a fin contrast to the fruitier Philippe Deschamps.
Since 2018, the wine is produced with no added sulfites and minimal intervention, allowing for more complexity in the finished wine. BUT once opened it will evolve, over about 5 hours. Keep it chilled if you're going to drink it slower.
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.
We order our nouveau with a little bit extra - more for the fully sans sulfite (because it improves for at least 3 years and is so interesting). 2021 left us with some stock and there's a couple 2019, which was exceptional.
The Lacondemine Nouveau is produced with no added sulfites and minimal intervention, allowing for more complexity in the wine - but it won't keep days after opening like a sulfited wine might. Not that you'll have any problems finishing the bottle.
