Celebrate the first 2023 vintage – “Le Nouveau Est Arrivé!”

The Nouveau has arrived! It’s time to celebrate the fruits of another successful harvest season with the first taste of the 2023 harvest.

At Lescombes Winery, our harvest season is a challenging yet rewarding time.

Much time is dedicated to checking chemistry to ensure the grapes are harvested at the exact right moment.

We carefully craft and set winemaking procedures with the intention of making every wine the best it can be. Each of our wines is crafted in differing ways; emphasizing varietal qualities, flavor profile preferences, and occasionally taking into account winemaking traditions.

Collecting free-run juice, pressing, crushing, pitching yeast, maceration, fermentation, and racking occur in different overlapping phases over 3 months or more in addition to continuing to craft and mature already existing vintages.

It’s a carefully orchestrated ballet that can seem like controlled chaos to an unfamiliar onlooker.

This year, as the holidays approach, the first wine from the 2023 harvest season is prepared for release. Made from 100% Syrah grapes grown in our family-owned New Mexico vineyard, we introduce our Nouveau. It embodies a celebration for our team, our guests, and our family.

Our 631 Signature Series Nouveau

Our Nouveau is a young, fresh, and easy-going wine crafted in the style of traditional French Beaujolais Nouveau. Its name meaning “new” in French, Nouveau is a celebration of the first release of the new harvest. You’ll taste very fresh, fruity berries, ripe strawberries, and juicy cherry notes that are supple and juicy.

Wine Pairing with Nouveau

Very food-friendly, this wine pairs well with charcuterie, soft or semi-soft cheeses, hors-d’oeuvres, salty snacks, salads, salmon, ham, chicken, or turkey. It is also perfect for holiday mingling, sipping on New Year’s Eve before the bubbly, or casual enjoyment with or without food.

Cheers to the first taste of a successful 2023 harvest!

Only available in-store, while it lasts. Visit us in Alamogordo, Albuquerque, Deming, Las Cruces, or Santa Fe to try this celebratory release!
