7 December 2021

At the end of November we keep one eye out for the release of Beaujolais Nouveau, the first wine of the French harvest of that year. We aren't so smitten we wait for the first overnight shipment to arrive but as soon as it hits the shelves, it somehow tumbles (gently) into our shopping cart.

The significance of this little ritual escapes us. We just like the stuff. And it's only available for a few days at the end of November and beginning of December.

We have learned that it should be (slightly) chilled to be enjoyed. It can be a little less enjoyable at room temperature. Otherwise do with it as you will.

Even after we've finished the bottle, we are barely able to take it off the table.

The label is always a delight, something colorful, joyous. Like a child's drawing or painting, less formal than the usual staid typographic label. It always makes us smile.

Here we have Georges DuBÅ“uf's 2021 vintage. Well, the bottle anyway. And, yes, that label. The sun shining through it one last time before it is gone forever except in our snapshot.
