rich and full-bodied.
It begins with good soil,
fertile vines laden with fruit
kissed by the sun and soaked with rain.
The first fruits of the vine invite us
to taste and see what goodness comes with age.

*“At one past midnight on the third Thursday of each November, from little villages and towns like Romanèche-Thorins, over a million cases of Beaujolais Nouveau begin their journey through a sleeping France to Paris for immediate shipment to all parts of the world. Banners proclaim the good news: Le Beaujolais Nouveau est arrivé! “The New Beaujolais has arrived!” One of the most frivolous and animated rituals in the wine world has begun.” https://www.intowine.com/beaujolais2.html
