Beaujolais Nouveau 2012

The harvest began a week ago in the Beaujolais. Weather has been quite nice and the forecast is also good for the next days. Halas there is no good surprise, the yields are historically low.
The fermentation is now over for the grapes which have been harvested early. We can have first an idea of the style of the Primeurs.
The colours are red and light with a good malic acidity level, this could lead to supple and charming Beaujolais Primeurs nevertheless we have to wait another week to have an exhaustive vision of the Primeur Beaujolais style.
