Beaujolais Nouveau 2005 G. Duboeuf wine review by (PB)

Previously reviewed when first released, this wine is still holding well. Very pretty color with strawberry notes in the bouquet and a touch of cinnamon. In the mouth it is simply fruity, light and made for guzzling. Don’t let this Nouveau go to long; remember they are made to be consumed within 9 months or so after its release in November.

This is the best release in years and is still very plentiful. In a couple months they will start dropping the price (currently still around $10) as they know it’s life-span is limited. Take advantage of it but don’t be surprised if you get a bad bottle as time goes on. Remember, wine is no bargain if it’s not pleasant to drink. Raise a glass.
