My second Nouveau of the season, following on from the delicious Georges DuBœf on release night. This one is medium purple, a touch less opaque that the previous. The nose has pronounced aromas of grape bubble gum, banana, red cherry candy (red licorice) and a touch of spice. The palate is dry with medium (+) acidity and very low tannins. Medium (-) bodied, I get flavors of grape bubble gum, grape jelly, cherry candy, and red licorice. It is a bit one-dimensional compared to the previous bottle. The finish is short but the tartness rolls on for a while. Not my favorite. 84 points and for $12, 2 stars. Drink now. Salut….
