2008 Nouveau Beaujolais
Has anyone else tried the 2008 release of Nouveau Beaujolais?
It usually gets a pretty bad rap (wrap?) but I thought this year was nicely acidic and refreshing, although I am a little skeptical of those bottles selling for more than $10. I'd like to know what other people think...
Hi there...I've tried both Novellas,a Georges DeBoeuf Gamay Nouveau,and a Jean-Jean Nouveau...all under $10.00 and all good for me...I love Nouveau/Novella...it's almost gone in most stores..but wouldn't pay over $10.00 the LCBO at Summerville had a wine sampling event last week when they first arrived ...best way to make your pick.......Miranda
I was glad that I never miss a Food & Wine Wednesday in the Globe. I recalled the article and saved my collectibles cash for better bottles.
I've never forgiven Georges Duboeuf since they did this:
I tried a Georges Duboeuf (sp?) nouveau Beaujolais on the weekend (gift from a dinner guest) and, though I'm not usually a big Beaujolais fan, I quite enjoyed it. I found it had more depth of flavour than other Beaujolais I've had. That being said, I'm far from a wine expert, so take my comments with a grain of salt...
