December Drinking Tip #1: Serve LIGHT REFRESHING REDS to balance the RICH TIMES/FOODS
I always pour Nouveau wines over the Holidays. Their refreshing tang and bright flavours have a way of restoring equilibrium in the season of excess. Serve lightly chilled of course. And if you really want to know the best wine with turkey â€“ itâ€™s Nouveau. You might get some flack from hard core wine geeks, but what do they know other than prestigious labels.
So check the stores for whatâ€™s left of Nouveau. My recommendations are:
NEGRAR 10 Novello del Veneto, Italy 899955 $9.95…Plummy, yummy and great value.
DROUHIN 10 Beaujolais-Villages Nouveau, France 113266 $14.95…Bright, flavourful and gulpable.
DUBOEUF 10 Beaujolais-Villages Nouveau, France 932780 $14.95…Fruity, fresh and delicious.
