Beaujolais Nouveau 2009: no thread yet? Horrors.

John Talbott | Nov 28, 2009 11:39 AM

I noticed there was no activity about BN this year. Why? Is it that:
1) We're over BN'd?
2) It's infradig?
3) This year is not worth commenting on?
4) We're ashamed to admit we tried it/them?

OK. I have no shame.
Today I've had two:
An A. Meyran at Chez Marie & Louise and
A Famille Jambon (Ham Family) from the Caves du Roy in the 18th (a largely bio, natural, good folk place.)

And, my personal, one person among 6,799,115,613 others, opinion, is, that it is really bad. I mean, I like sweaty leather, cherries, strawberries, bananas, vanilla, armpits and rottting rodents (I made the last two up), but my advice is to not take your gold fillings out despite the market and trade them in on Beaujolais futures.
