Dr. Pepper and cherry cola on the nose followed by cherry bubblegum on the palate. Rustic with more of a tannin grip than the other nouveau-style wines in 2016. Finishes with Juicy Fruit purple gum. Pair with red licorice.

Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Happy 2016 Beaujolais Nouveau tidings! Tasting my 6th one so far and they are pretty consistent. The J. P. Chenet Art's showcases ripe cherry and floral aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with some grippy tannins, high acidity, and long tart cherry finish. And interesting 'Nouveau' altogether. Tasted Nov 2016 - @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Juicy and mouthwatering, this cherry, ripe red berry Beaujolais Nouveau 2016 is ready to drink. Fun and friendly, featuring grippy medium tannins, medium plus acidity. Released on the third Thursday of November. Tasted Nov 2016. Rated 86/100.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
