Louis Tête 2002 Beaujolais-Villages Nouveau ($9.99)
Bright garnet color, offering fresh berries in the aroma and ripe fruit framed by tart acidity in the flavor. Simple but well-balanced, dry and tart with good, characteristic fruit flavors, it's a wine-lover's Nouveau. US Importer: Bercut-Vandervoort & Co., San Francisco. (Nov 25, 2002)
FOOD MATCH: Worked well with lightly spicy Cajun-style fare.

Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the WineLoversPage.com name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.
Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
