BeaujolaisNouveau2015It’s always a hopeful sign when Beaujolais Nouveau arrives — proof that Providence and man have been fruitful together for another year.

With its Gamay grapes fermented by carbonic maceration rather than yeast, Beaujolais Nouveau is “instant” wine that should be consumed within days of production.

The 2015 Beaujolais Nouveau, by Georges Duboeuf, is at Sherry-Lehmann on Park Ave. for $9.99/btl. The result is especially good, with the tannin structure and balance of a more mature wine, combined with the freshness of youth.

We like it with barbecue and turkey w/fixings.
