Any recs for buying crates of Beaujolais Nouveau next month?

Hi all,

Has anyone bought Beaujolais Nouveau in LA in the past years? I'd like to have a Beaujolais Nouveau party on November 17 (2 days after it's released in France) but I'm afraid that might be cutting it too short to actually get any of the French wine. Has anyone hosted such a party or been to one in LA? Is it better to delay the party until after Thanksgiving when there's a bigger chance the wines will be in?

Second question: What is the best distributor in LA (or online) for buying BN? Wine Access? I'd like to buy a few crates.

    1. You can get Beaujolais Nouveau from The Wine Country in Signal Hill (Long Beach, basically) Thursday Nov 15 - and in fact there is a tasting of these from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm. Yes, I work there. :)
