    Where do you stand on Beaujolais nouveau?
    I'm big on marking the changing of the seasons and acknowledging the milestones of the year. For me Beaujolais nouveau is the first taste of the new harvest and the opportunity to reflect back on the year. It's rollout is a good opportunity to clink glasses and acknowledge another trip around the sun. Because the official BN release date is so close to Thanksgiving, we usually have a bottle on hand to go with the turkey. It is a nice match. All that having been said, it is young and light and fruity (and varies in quality from producer to producer). It's not something that you'd want to drink with a great steak or a really subtle dish. That having been said, it's quaffable and I like it as one of those traditions that mean autumn is truly here and Christmas is not far away.

    A year has passed and it is the third Thursday in November again. Time for the first release of the 2017 vintage! (and Happy Thanksgiving!)
