This ultra-young wine offers a nose of ripe strawberries and candied fruit notes, as always, but finds balance on the body in the form of some chocolate, fresh herb notes, and much less sweetness than this wine typically exhibits. Lately I’ve found myself becoming heavily attuned to sweetness in wines these days, and Bojo Nouveau is often a serious offender in that category. Surprisingly, the wine manages to keep the sugar in check with the 2015 vintage, which is definitely a boon for an oft-maligned category — and for you, the holiday drinker.
Even the bottle design is better than usual!
