Beaujolais Nouveau 2016 - First tastings

I have just tasted several cuvées of Beaujolais Nouveau and wanted to immediately let you in on my impressions.

The wines all have a deep colour of intense, blue red. They are very attractive.
The nose is on the register of small black fruits with some lightly spicy notes. On the palate they are suave, but are equally very fresh.
There is a clear sensation of ‘biting' into fresh fruit in the mouth.
Our impressions after these tastings leave us very hopeful of a very pretty cuvée of Beaujolais nouveau in 2016.
