With apologies to Frank Sinatra, let me just say that 2009 was a very saucy little year for Beaujolais Nouveau.
On a whim today, I stopped by the wine shop on the way home from lunch with a friend. They had some new wines sitting on the barrell at the front and I took a quick look. My wine guy said, "Those are new today." I looked a the label and they were all Beaujolais Nouveau. I looked at him and said, "Already?"
Yep, third Thursday in November.
