A swing into Thirst, AKA the Other Music of wine stores,* yielded a couple of bottles of Beaujolais Nouveau, sans the familiar LeRoy Neimanesque DuBoeuf livery, and avec the name of Kermit Lynch** as importer. I asked if there would be a difference, and the Thirst merchant informed me that what distinguished this BN from others is that it is made with grapes and yeast. Oh, snap. But the Gamay minus Giorgio, or whatever they add to the supermarket Beaujolais made for a tasty Thanksgiving beverage.
*My first visit to the supermarket wine aisle post-Thirst made me feel like I was shopping for Garanimals. Do we want the wine with the monkey, or the wine with the giraffe?
