Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau 2010
Beaujolais Nouveau is all about freshness. These Gamay grapes were just picked weeks ago, thus a very short fermentation. Generous notes of strawberry and black currant dominate the nose, with silky tannins that bring smoothness to the palate. The finish has subtle touches of sweet cherry.
Another slightly disappointing Nouveau when compared with the spectacular 2009. Still, there is ample candied fruit (especially the soft, mango-banana flavored jelly candy I enjoyed as a child) and some heft. Generally better than the Mommessin with lots of fresh fruit perfume, some tannin (or stem) and a nice non-acoholic, short finish - as expected. Harbinger of a more pedestrian vintage?
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.
I always get a bottle of Beaujolais in the fall...this is always a winner and reliable when I want a juicy fruity red to transition into the cooler months.
This wine had a surprising Zip to it.
Hints of orange/citrus in this one. Nice long finish, and that is a pleasure. Nevertheless, I am a bit disappointed in that I generally love the slightly yeasty taste of a good nouveau, and this just tastes like a very young gamay without a lot of character. I really would not buy another bottle of this unless there was just no other nouveau available. Nouveaus are like Christmas to me, they only come once a year, and they are meant to be enjoyed with friends and lively conversation. Sadly this one just did not hit the spot.
I may not have the vintage right. Need to go back and check my notes (Ron & Judy's, Aug. '11). My comment: Where's the beef (or boeuf, as the case may be)? So light and virtually tasteless that I can't imagine ever buying a bottle of this stuff.
George Duboeuf, 2010, Beaujolais Nouveau, France Price $7 per bottle The 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. We had the wine with chili and corn bread. The wine and chili went well together, sweet verses spice. The corn bread and the wine did not. The corn bread was sweeter than the wine causing the wine’s sour component to be enhanced. We complete the bottle with camembert cheese with guava jelly and a side disk of strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. The Beaujolais Nouveau went well with all except the blueberries. We purchased two bottles and will be drinking the second in a few weeks. http://duboeufnouveau.com/Default.aspx
External Reviews for Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau
The first wine of the vintage, this is a charming rendition of the gamay grape: fresh, fragrant and delightfully fruity. Versatile enough to enjoy with your favorite holiday cuisine.
Pretty and pure, with black cherry, spice and floral notes, and actual grip on the finish. Brings you back for more. Drink now.
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
Good purity up front here, with solid griottes flavor, though the structured finish becomes a bit taut in the end. Atypically structured, but reflects the qualities of the vintage.
Kick off the fall wine season with this perennial favorite produced from the Gamay grape. Often recommended as the lightest and softest of red wines. Fresh red berries, zesty acidity and light body.
Pleasant, supple, light and very fruity. It always keeps the Gamay taste as well as the taste of fresh grapes. Enjoy with grilled beef, baked seafood, Indian cuisine or ratatouille.
Duboeuf is probably the most famous producer in the Beaujolais region, and his Nouveaus have been a holiday standard for our customers every year that we can remember. This yearrsquo;s edition is incredibly intense and full of fruit mdash; it tastes like a liquid Jolly Rancher! For those of you who have been faithfully following the Dubouefs, this is one of the best vintages in recent memory; if you liked last yearrsquo;s, you definitely wonrsquo;t be disappointed this time around.
