Labouré-Roi Beaujolais Nouveau 2008

Member Review by tabednar:

Last Nouveau I will probably try from 2008. I really enjoyed this one. Deep purple color. Medium bodied with hints of tropical fruit (banana) and red berry, possibly strawberry or raspberry. I chilled it for about 20 minutes prior to tasting and the real fruit flavors didn't come up until it warmed up. Finish was pleasant but very abrupt. Also liked the "green" statement the winery made with planting a tree with each bottle sold and using plastic to decrease their carbon footprint. I would say it is definitely worth the $6, especially if you haven't had a chance to try Nouveau from '08.

Banana and tropical fruit with tart acidity and a light body. I couldn't resist the temptation to try at least one more Nouveau this year. Probably not the best of the bunch, but not too bad either.
