for this region?

Beaujolais Nouveau is a style of young, fresh wine produced in the Beaujolais region, adjacent to Burgundy, France. Every year, these are released on the third Thursday of November, with much fanfare that “Les Beaujolais Nouveau est arrivé!!!” What began as a local tradition in the 19th century, made popular in Parisian cafés in the 1950s, has become an actual race for worldwide distribution. Every method of transportation imaginable has been used to ensure arrival by midnight of that Thursday (to release any time before is strictly prohibited), and its many fans can open a fresh bottle that very day. This style accounts for nearly half the entire region’s annual output. 

To get technical, this a primeur style of wine, which simply means that it is released between its harvest date and the following spring. It’s not uncommon in other parts of the world, but Beaujolais Nouveau is the most popular and sought after. But isn’t wine supposed to age a bit Read more »

  • Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau 2010

    Snoothrank:

    I try to taste Georges Duboeuf's Beaujolais Nouveau every year to indulge in the hype. Always similar in that fresh Gamay chewiness. Tastes of strawberry and no aging as expected. Fruit juice in nature but always a fun wine to try. If you have this bottle I would drink it soon...I have had old Beaujolais Nouveau and it is not pleasurable. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Good for a Beaujolais nouveau. Almost taste like candy, not too sweet though, had a little bit of acidity. Good everyday wine. According to my bf, it's less abrasive than a typical Beaujolais nouveau. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Hints of orange/citrus in this one. Nice long finish, and that is a pleasure.

I really would not buy another bottle of this unless there was just no other nouveau... Read More

    George Duboeuf, 2010, Beaujolais Nouveau, FrancePrice $7 per bottleThe color was a medium red, the nose was fruity, and it reminded me of grape pie. The fruity sweet taste is what I was expecting from the Beaujolais Nouveau; there was a hind of sweet yeast in the wine. Tannins were present but not very noticeable. The wine had a nice after taste... Read More
