Beaujolais Nouveau 2022

Beaujolais Nouveau

     In France, the first bottles of Beaujolais Nouveau, the young exuberant fruity wine were uncorked just after midnight by tradition, as always, on the third Thursday in November, this year on the 17th.
     It is another year and another vintage celebration the world over that blends an easy-to-drink-no-fuss wine with a powerful grand tradition. And in our hearts it's a time to live again and we can use the break.
     The Beaujolais touchstone that maybe we didn't recall that we missed for the past few years came around and hung out for a change and was very welcome.
     Thoughts drift to the divine brasseries of Paris like S.A.S. Au Pied de Cochon or At the Pigs' Feet in English, the all-night Parisian brasserie that opened in 1947, that has become a well-known spot to celebrate the ritualistic annual uncorking of Beaujolais Nouveau at midnight.
     The bell rang announcing this year's vintage to an eager clientele.
     It’s a superb moment because the arrival of Beaujolais Nouveau is a time of conviviality and sharing wine is a feeling of sharing life and pleasure.
     Now once again we can stick our toe back into life post COVID.
     What are the reviews of the wine?
     We hear France’s Beaujolais region experienced an outstanding vintage. The 2022 Nouveau unveiled last Thursday is great.
     Even the critics were impressed.
     Wine Spectator’s blind-tasting showed the wine to be especially juicy, fresh and aromatic, with greater density than is typical for these usually light-bodied reds.
     Once upon a time, as faithful as United Cargo was in shipping the Academy Awards every year (they still do) and taking pictures of the movement, Lufthansa Cargo and Air France KLM Martinair Cargo would make a big deal of the first shipments of the Beaujolais Nouveaux.
     Today, alas just when we could all use a lift, the new wine sort of comes and goes without much mention by the airlines.
     Come to think of it, we don't see too many pictures of horse shipments anymore either!
     As it happens the Arend family has a wine expert, in fact our resident sommelier Emily Parker Arend (daughter).
     Emily says she doubts this Beaujolais 2022, as this past summer was quite dry.
     But Emily, as I recall has never seen a November 17th except maybe to be polite, or paid much attention to the fuss although at Sunday Family Dinner she surrendered sort of, and said there would be a bottle of 2022 for Thanksgiving.
     Celebrate! Le Beaujolais Nouveau est arrivé!
