November 19 2008

Day a young French wine Beaujolais Nouveau will be celebrated tomorrow in 110 countries. This year's harvest was the smallest volume since 1975, but very mellow.

In three weeks, harvest in September did not fall a single potash rain, and the wine turned out flavorful and elegant, luxurious, but not pushy, juicy, but not rude. "Silky wine with a red tinge, the epitome of elegance. With the aroma of fruit, black grapes Gamay with white juice, adding notok peach and apricot, in a word, the taste of fruits, vegetables and fruit again!" - Winemakers say.

Last year almost half of the "Beaujolais Nouveau" has been sold abroad. According to French media, about 8.26 million bottles bought in Japan, 2.55 million bottles - in the U.S. and 2 million - in Germany. Japan for seven years now ranked first in the consumption of "Beaujolais Nouveau". The absolute record was made in 2004, when the Japanese bought 12.5 million bottles of wine, according to RIA Novosti .
