Beaujolais Nouveau 2016 - First tastings

We have tasted the first tanks which have finished their alcoholic fermentations and we are very enthusiastic about what we have just tasted. The colours are deep and very pretty and it is especially the fruity character which has pleasantly surprised us.

We had expected these wines to have more body, but they are very fresh and fruity, even more than in 2015. The levels of acidity are very good.

We will be tasting the wines coming from the later ripening parcels in the next 15 days, but for now everything is presenting very well.
