    September 27, 2014 - Should have drank this last bottle sooner. This one had turned the corner, just too much brett to be enjoyable.

    July 5, 2013 - Still tasty but this bottle had a bit more brett than previous ones. Came across a bit thin and metallic on the back end. Will drink my last bottle very soon.

    April 12, 2013 - 4th bottle and still the best Nouveau I've ever had. Each has needed plenty of air to sort things out; this was surprisingly best on day 2.

    February 2, 2013 - Third bottle of this in the last month. While each has shown a bit differently, all have been delicious with about 45 minutes of air.

    December 16, 2012 - Has more to offer than a typical nouveau. Very nice.

    (Jean Foillard Beaujolais Nouveau) Dark garnet red color; lifted, fresh, tart currant, mineral, herbs (thyme and marjoram) nose; tasty, fresh, tart currant, herbs, mineral palate; medium finish (a really lovely Nouveau, drinking like a mature Bojo Villages, but lighter bodied)
