Name: Manoir du Carra Beaujolais Nouveau Gamay

Variety: Beaujolais Nouveau Gamay

Region: Beaujolais

Country: France

Year: 2014

Price: $12

Shop’s Notes: A pretty, floral wine, with a rose petal note underscoring the rich pomegranate and sweet plum flavors. The fresh acidity is balanced, and a light spice note lingers on the finish.

My Notes: The nose on this wine was very earthy with maybe a little spice. These things became more apparent in the body with some berry notes as well. I thought the body was a bit too acidic and obnoxious.

I did not have this wine with food.
