Generation Seven Wines 2012 Nouveau - 87pts
Availability: Direct from Chateau Des Charmes here
Cost: $11.95 (Ontario)
Date Tasted: November 22nd, 2012
Tasting Notes: Produced as an ode to Beaujolais Nouveau, this charming Gamay Noir from Chateau Des Charmes' 2nd label, Generation Seven, is immediately engaging when you get your first sniff of the vibrant raspberry jam and maraschino cherry aromas on the playful nose. Fruity and bright on the ultra-youthful, low-tannin palate, staying true to the varietal with nice spice and a hint of cured meat flavours beneath the prominent red fruit. A wine to be enjoyed in its youth, by the case throughout the holiday season - incredible value! Drink 2012-2013.
