Beaujolais Nouveau 2012 G. Duboeuf wine review by (PB)

The annual celebration of the release of Beaujolais Nouveau (NEW)can be studied in our previous posts as this is a BIG day each and every year.

This years Nouveau is cherry red with bright cherry/strawberry aromas with little touches of cinnamon.

Palate--classic Nouveau from the Gamay grape with lovely simple strawberry flavor that is nothing short of delightful. This is a good year for Nouveau so grab it a enjoy it NOW as this wine is meant to drink within the next few months. Expect to pay around $10 and raise a glass!

Best that I remember. Not a hint of the cloying yeastiness so familiar to NB. GREAT!

Bought a bottle of Duboeuf nouveau labeled Cuvee Speciale. Chilled it and tried it as I have every year for the last ten. I don't expect too much from Nouveau. I have always liked the fruit forward celebration from the festive bottles. The taste of this years vintage from the bottle I tried was truly awful. Overtones of barnyard acid and finish of outhouse.

Maybe the "Speciale" had something to do with the "aromas" you describe. :) Seriously, this is one of the best Nouveau's in a 2-3 years so give it another chance; try another producer perhaps and raise a glass.
