Editorial Reviews for Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais-Villages Nouveau
Spicy and a bit earthy on the nose with aromas of black grapes and jammy strawberry fruit. Light fresh and a bit dilute in the mouth with some finely ripe tannins adding a bit of mouthgrab to the easygoing cherry/strawberry flavors that pick up some earthy and vaguely herbal nuance on the backend. and through the short, somewhat sharp finish. 83pts
The 2014 Beaujolais Nouveau seems deeper, darker and less thin and acidic - the latter properties being largely responsible for the decline of Nouveau - until recently. The scent is of candied red fruit... with tropical notes such as ripe sweet banana. The entry is quick, slightly acidic with good fruit. Not bitter or tasting of stems this time round. The beer of wine and above average this time. 84 points. Enjoy!
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.
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.

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.

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 **

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.
