Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau Beaujolais-Villages 2013
I agree with Lynnjp. Picked it up for the same reason. Quick cheap holiday wine to get me past the dreaded dinners and overeating. Well it wasnt fantastic. To be perfectly honest my wife and I didnt even finish the bottle. We had one glass, tried to suck it up and finish it off but just couldnt. Wild uncontrolable tannins with a carnival ride of fruit that had no consistancy. Ive been a fan of the Nouveau in the past and been happier with it. The 2013 was disapointing.
This was an ok wine. I picked it up at the local grocery store as an afterthought due to the marketing :). Thanksgiving Wine! and I thought what the heck, I am trying all different kinds of wine, what not give it a try, I did, and all I can say is, been there, done that, drank it and got the souvenir bottle. I would give a better descriptive tasting note, but I don't feel I have the nose, palate or knowledge to do that. All I can say was that it was ok, but I would not buy it again except for novelty purposes.
Easy to tell this is very young. Very tannic, not a lot of depth of flavor. Very fruit-forward as advertised. My first BVN, but something to baseline against for future years. Picked up at Giant in Nov 2013.

We are grateful for a lovely "Indian Summer," which amongst other things, helped to produce a harvest that is wonderfully mature and rich in sugar, reaching the same standards as the 2011 and 2012 vintages. The quality of the vintage is promising and the colors are gorgeous with lovely purple reds and violet hued glints. The aromas are sublime with wild strawberries, redcurrants and, in particular, exquisite scents of raspberries. Beaujolais Nouveau 2013 will be a joy to drink! - 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.
