Duboeuf Nouveau Beaujolais-Villages Premier 2012
A bit too fruity and sweet even for a BN, not my cup of tea.
Extremely fruit forward as expected. Light bodied with little depth. Aroma of cherry and raspberry. Easy to drink with not much aftertaste. A typical example of Beaujolais Nouveau.
Super fresh grape and flower aromas. Bubblegum. On the palate, it's zippy and super young (of course). Purple fruit. Strawberry. Yeasty, bready finish. Not a fan of Nouveau, but tried it anyway. 78 pts. 11/17/12
Acidic, harsh, not at all what we expected.
External Reviews for Duboeuf Nouveau Beaujolais-Villages Premier
Beaujolais nouveau is a red wine made from Gamay grapes produced in the Beaujolais region of France. It is the most popular vin de primeur, fermented for just a few weeks then officially released for sale on the third Thursday of November. This "Beaujolais Day", or "Beaujolais Nouveau Day" sees heavy marketing from the producers, with races to get the first bottles of the vintage to different markets.
Deep, radiant ruby color. Intensely perfumed nose, offering a whirl of richly concentrated jam-like fruits. Vibrant, fruit forward and best chilled, BeaujolaisNouveau will enchant your palate. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **
Always a great choice for the Holidays. Fresh and fruit forward with flavors of strawberry jam and cherry. The first arrival of the newest vintage!

An intense, brilliant cherry color with purplish tints. Complex nose with red and black berry aromas (raspberries, redcurrants, blackcurrants). A smooth wine with fine tannins, harmonious and complete.
