Beaujolais Nouveau has been released.
I look forward to drinking Beaujolais Nouveau every year.
This year, I pre-ordered and bought an interesting Beaujolais Nouveau.
It is made by a Japanese wine maker “Junko Arai”.
I didn’t know that a Japanese winemaker is making French wine.
So I was interested in her small quantity of wine.
This is “Beaujolais Villages Nouveau 2020, LE PONT DU DIABLE”.
The wine label is so charming.
A sweet demoness wearing high-heeled shoes is drinking wine.
“LE PONTE DU DIABLE” is the name of a vineyard, and this sweet demoness seems to mean DIABLE.
I pulled out a cork from a bottle with my Waiter’s Corkscrew that is made by ATHRO.
I really like this moment.
And then, I poured some wine into my wine glass.
This time, I chose a Burgundy glass from among my various wine glasses. It was made by ZWIESEL.
The color of the wine was beautiful; it was like a garnet.
When I shook it gently in a circular motion, I found that this wine had a floral aroma.
After that I took a sip of wine.
This Beaujolais Nouveau was fresh, supple and fruity with a balanced acidity.
I think Sukiyaki goes very well with this red wine.
Tannic red wine doesn’t make me feel greasy with beef.
This combination is refreshing and it has a rich taste.
Moreover, I used this wine as a secret ingredient in Sukiyaki.
It is my little ingenuity.
I enjoyed Beaujolais Nouveau this way this year too.
Though I drink wine all year round, Beaujolais Nouveau is an autumn trend for me.
As a little side note, it is fun for me to taste and compare Beaujolais Nouveau with matured Beaujolais wine like the “Marcel Lapierre Morgon”.
Next year, I will buy her wine again.
I really like it.
