Two bottles each of the following:
2023 Pierre-Marie Chermette Griottes Primeur Nouveau - Burgundy, France (750ml) - $20
This cuvée is the epitome of Beaujolais Nouveau - the first red wine of the vintage from the Northern Hemisphere - fresh, ripe, light and eminently quaffable! Yet Chermette’s version remains an honest, high-integrity natural wine like all of their more serious wines. 100% Gamay fermented using a technique called carbonic-maceration which emphasizes freshness while suppressing the tannins. As such, it’s super supple and easy to drink. A charming wine that pairs perfectly with sesame-soy glazed chicken and garlicky yu choy (Chinese broccoli).
2023 Laurence et Remi Dufaitre Beaujolais Nouveau - Beaujolais Villages, France (750ml) - $20
This 100% Gamay from Laurence and Rémi Dufaitre is full of meadow flowers and dark cherries, with a touch of light fizz. The Nouveau is fermented in concrete tanks before bottling quickly to preserve the fresh first taste of the vintage. This year’s vintage is lean and restrained, with a subtle sour note and aromas of rich dark fruit. Laurence and Rémi Dufaitre’s Beaujolais Nouveau is a bright, natural take on a well-made classic.
2023 Las Jaras Slipper Sippers Nouveau Old Vines - North Coast, CA (750ml) - $25
From Las Jaras winemakers Eric and Joel comes this west coast take on a Beaujolais Nouveau. A blend of 74% Valdiguie (known as “Napa Gamay”), 18% Petit Sirah, and 8% Zinfandel, each grape is vinified separately and undergoes 14 days of carbonic maceration. Slipper Sippers is a juicy wine with bright acidity and a nose full of dark fruit, chocolate covered cherry and boysenberry, finishing with fine tannins.
