Mommessin Beaujolais Nouveau 2016

Member Review by zufrieden:

As far as Nouveau goes, Mommessin usually makes for heartier fare; the fruit is deeper, less candied and refined - yet totally a product of maceration carbonique - with candy floss, hard (red) candy apple and banana on the nose with that Gamay cherry poking through as well. Very grapey finish - as it should be - with easy drinking, post-harvest flair. Recommended, if you like primeur.... as I do. 86 points.

Judging by the depth of colour, the inviting banana, pear and cherry nose, and the chunky mouthfeel of this wine (and there is a little tannin, notwithstanding the brief contact with skins in this kind of wine), 2015 looks like a good year for the Crus. The finish is quite long and elegant for a "new" wine - although Mommessin is always a bit more serious in style. Recommended. 86 points.

The 2014 Mommessin Beaujolais Nouveau is, as usual, quite different in style from the typical (cf.Duboeuf) offering; the nose is quite dumb (mute), and on entry is more brooding and serious with dark fruit (and plum) dominant. Very smooth, but none of the tropical fruit many of you no doubt expect. Still, an easy drinking primeur with more gravity (more like a village wine). I actually prefer this style; there is the freshness but more wine than grape juice. 84 points.

Nice inviting tropical fruit nose with some banana and mango (especially the scent one finds in certain hard candy). Mommessin is usually deeper and more substantial, but this one is middling in stature. The palate receives a semi-sweet juiciness, with none of the stemmy acerbity of the past year. The mouthfeel is, overall, pleasant and something the punters will like. Serve cold and often. 85 points.

The Mommessin Nouveau for 2011 has a wonderfully inviting banana cream pie nose with a little cotton candy (floss) on top. On entry, the wine is slightly metallic with a touch of stem and dried cranberry. Not much of a taste experience, but rather deep and round for a primeur.Needs better fruit extraction - or, perhaps better fruit. Still, this is quaffable if disappointing...

Est arrive! It is what it is I suppose. Candy,sugary nose. Very light on the palate, dare I say it, like grape juice? It fizzes and bounces on the tongue and then disappears into the night. I've sure had worse and I'm happy to be part of the Beaujolais Noveau celebration for one weekend of the year.

Appearance in the glass very dark and reminiscent of the splendid 2009 vintage - reputed to be the best in 50 years. The depth of black fruit and cultivated violet flowers on the nose is impressive for a new wine. Nice candy-floss and blackberry flavors that just begin to intrigue the palate but then disappear in a typically short finish. If this is an indication of the quality of the better crus, consider seeking them out over the next 2 years!
