Acrobats, jugglers, trapeze artists and more, including actress Molly Sims, were on hand to make this day, billed as NOUVEAU CIRQUE, an Event of Worldwide Magnitude. The circus like party, brain child of PR Guru Melanie Young, focused on the Gamay grape of Beaujolais, which was hand-harvested and bottled only six weeks after harvest.
Frank Duboeuf explained that the "2010 Beaujolais Nouveau is a youthful wine with a fresh vibe. It is an explosion of flavor on the palate with bright red fruits and rich floral aromas. It is sure to be a crowd pleaser".
My thoughts on the 2010 BEAUJOLAIS NOUVEAU:
+ Reddish-violet in color.
+ Strawberries and cherries on the palate.
+ Good acidity.
+ Great food wine when chilled for a short period of time.
At under $10 a bottle, this year's version of Frank Duboeuf's Beaujolais Nouveau is a true steal!
BUY some before it disappears....
