Review: 2009 Georges DuBoeuf Beaujolais Nouveau and Beaujolais-Villages Nouveau

2009 Georges DuBoeuf Beaujolais Nouveau

November means Beaujolais Nouveau, and, as usual, the first Beaujolais through the door is Georges DuBoeuf’s two bottlings, the standard Beaujolais Nouveau and the more sophisticated Beaujolais-Villages Nouveau.

I tried both, with curious results.

First up is the 2009 Georges DuBoeuf Beaujolais Nouveau, the entry level expression and a rather crude wine, to be honest. Embarrassingly young, it’s more grape juice than wine, a blatantly jammy and far too fruity wine for drinking much of. C- / $10

The 2009 Georges DuBoeuf Beaujolais-Villages Nouveau is a more sophisticated wine, with the sweetness toned down but still plenty tart. This is a better choice for your Thanksgiving table or other holiday drinking experiences, big with Bing cherries but also bearing a touch of earth and balanced herbaciousness — and only a buck more expensive. B / $11
