Now that Thanksgiving is past we can all let out a small sigh of relief. Except for wine retailers, who now begin the struggle to sell off the annual river of Beaujolais Nouveau that invariably gets stuck on their shelves. Now don't get me wrong, Beaujolais Nouveau is a fun tradition and a genius bit of marketing by the big Beaujolais producers. Not to mention a great way to generate cash going into the winter season. But I'd like to grab a small bit of Beaujolais' annual spotlight and redirect it toward the more serious and, frankly, better wines that come from there.
