The most over-hyped wine is back again. It’s that time of the year again when the Beaujolais Nouveau hits the tables of the bars and bistrots. It’s a marketing ploy andyou can let yourself go happily drinking that extra bit of wine because after all (if you really needed it) its a good excuse to let some of Bacchus’ special slide down your throat. Don’t be fooled though… it’s no big deal…it’s just a lot of noise (and colour) that is the result of a clever marketing trick that persists through the years. This is the smallest crop since 1975… which does not mean that we will not have thousands of bottles flooding the tables for the end of November.
Warning: J’accuse would like to encourage its esteemed readership to enjoy wine and alcoholic beverages with responsible moderation. If Responsible Moderation is nowhere to be seen then it is normally advisable to stop drinking when “leg” fails to obey orders from “fuzzy brain”. Driving is definitely not on the menu at that point.
Seriously. Don’t drink and drive. And drink responsibly (If you want to drink that is. You don’t have to. And you cannot if you are not 17 yet).
This has been j’accuse… wine tasting so you don’t have to.
