"Beaujolais Nouveau Domaine Chantegrillet 2008
i bought this wine on impulse in the supermarket the other week. I had no idea when the Beaujolais Nouveau comes out but it turned out to have been just a few days before. Advice from North Yorkshire told me that it should be drunk now so i wasted no time this evening.
this wine is bright, direct and clear tasting.
the taste is so...simple that i cant really escribe it by comparison using the usual adjectives. its not acidic, theres a hint of fruit but the taste is just that of a straight up, honest and highly drinkable wine.
as a result of this freshness there isnt a cloying aftertaste and it is very drinkable.
Unfortunately due to this wine's qualities, there isn';t much I can say in words about it - it's better to drink it!
I bought this from Waitrose, so try there."
