2011 Beaujolais Nouveau

2011 Domaine Dupeuble Beaujolais Nouveau 12.5% $15.00

Reticent with more earth, spice and floral notes than fruit on the nose.  Rather larger scaled than many 2011s with a lovely texture, which is light and elegant yet with some weight. The black currant, black berry and inky spice flavors really penetrate the palate, leading to a fresh, long, slightly mineral edged blackberry scented finish. There is lovely purity to this wine. 87pts

    Thank you for some simple, excellent comments on Beaujolais Nouveau. It gets so dreary to hear people complaining about it every year. And this year's is a delight. Goes very well with Chritmas lunch, too, I find.

  • "It's a wine that harkens back to more primitive days..."

    When we were gullible.

    Le Beaujolais Nouveau est passé.

    Have you tried any Nouveau this year or do you just enjoy repeating standard wine geek lines?

  • Sadly, yes - the Georges Duboeuf, a taste of which was delivered with a shrug of resignation by a London merchant.

    Like, I suspect, the majority of this year's Nouveau, it will be immeasurably better when it is plus vieux.

    Nice article, thanks Greg. For me, BN is a perfect Sunday afternoon drink. Especially as the days become colder and drinking cava seems less appealing.

    Thanks Fender!

    My thoughts exactly, Sunday lunch with leftovers.

  • Still think it's the Beaujolais which should have been left over, to mature some more!
