2020 Domaine de Cornillac Beaujolais Nouveau

Price: $17.99

Domaine de Cornillac is a small, family-owned winery in the Saint Verand region of southern Beaujolais. Unlike most Beaujolais Nouveau that are produced by large conglomerates to be sold en masse to American consumers, Domaine de Cornillac uses the grapes from their young estate vines to produce a small bottling of Nouveau. Unfortunately there is not much else we can tell you. This is their first major bottling of Nouveau, and since it still hadn’t arrived when this was being written, it’s possible only the winemaker has tried it! But if the quality of their standard Beaujolias is an indicator of quality then we are in for a real treat. Expect juicy fruit notes that classically pair with anything on the Thanksgiving table.
