Beaujolais Nouveau

Every year a new batch of Beaujolais Nouveau wines are released on the third Thursday of November. While not many North Americans go wild over this event, the Japanese are particularly intrigued by it and buy these wines in excess.

 

I'm heading over to a little wine & cheese party this Saturday so I bought myself two bottles of Beaujolais Nouveau wines: one from Italy (CAN$8.95 on the left), and one from France (CAN$15.95 on the right).

 

They are usually fruity, with aromas and taste of many types of berries, and go well with various meats and nuts.
