Beaujolais Nouveau Montmessin

LCBO, $13.95 (canadian)
Beaujolais Region, Gamay Noir grapes
Carbonically macerated.

Call me a wine geek, but I'm still a big fan of the nouveaux. First wines of the summer, fresh, ready to drink. The montmessin was a great example of everything that is good about BNs.

Soft, fruity, lots of candied fruits (red fruit) on both the nose and the palatte. Clean and fresh, little if any tannins. A delightful pale ruby red colour.

I didn't take any notes, but 2003 looks like a good year for fun fruity wines.
