Four-year-old Beaujolais Nouveau - ever wondered?

Well, in case you have, I had a glass last night.

I felt very special having something most wine lovers have probably never tasted! My aunt, to whom I gifted a bottle of Beaujolais Nouveau back in '99, popped the cork on it last night when she invited my husband and I over for dinner.

At first sip, I thought it was just going to be very thin and grape-juicy...but drinkable. But then, it hit the back of the palate and made a nice little tongue-circle of funk and heat, fishy and heavy-alcohol tasting. Sorry I'm no better with wine descriptions... it was certainly an interesting taste!
