Yeast wafts into the room as soon as you open the bottle.

2011 Beaujolais Nouveau Labouré Roi

Yeast wafts into the room as soon as you open the bottle. Then the fruit arrives, both in aroma and flavor: strawberries, blackberries, candied red currants. A light, drinkable vintage. And there’ is some acidity for backbone, which is mainly noticeable at the end — as are the mild, light tannins. Recommended. BSE
