Loic et Noel Bulliat Beaujolais Nouveau: Smooth, berryish, not acidic

dec. 18, 2011: we had my parents over for dinner to celebrate an early christmas since they were going to be out of town on the holiday, and my dad brought over this 2011 loic and noel bulliat beaujolais nouveau that they had gotten in paris the third week of november, when the new beaujolais parties take place. this bottle was unusual first of all because it was in a clear bottle, further evidence that beaujolais nouveau is in fact something you want to drink soon after it's released. but we liked this gamay variety from the beaujolais district of france because it was very smooth, which is unlike a lot of beaujolais (many tend to be acidic, which is fine if you have an acidic dish to pair with it.) i'm not sure how much my parents paid for this, but we were happy to try it.

here's a link to the website (check out the cute dog loic and noel have as a mascot): http://domaine-bulliat.fr/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=12&Itemid=11
