The bottle that I bought at the NH Liquor Store in Wolfeboro, NH at 7:15pm on November 15, 2012, Beaujolais Nouveau Day 2012. Click to ENLARGE.

Uncorked and waiting my indulgence. It was well worth it. Click to ENLARGE.


As promised, I went to the NH Liquor Store in Wolfeboro, NH, this evening, Beaujolais Nouveau Day 2012, around 7:15 pm, and bought a bottle of Beaujolais Nouveau. They only had the Georges Duboeuf and it was $9.99 as I had previously reported. At 7:15 pm I was the FIRST to buy a bottle from that store! More later on that.


The 2012 Georges Duboeuf is a quintessential Beaujolais Nouveau, in my opinion! Rejoice. It is fruity and aromatic. It is pleasantly tart, but that morphs quickly into a refreshing tanginess. It does not let you forget that it came from plump, purple grapes. You can feel the grapes, but in the nicest possible way. If you linger you can visualize the skins. It reminds you of eating grapes.

It is ultra palatable. It is extremely light. Even airy. Very easy to drink, with savour. Those that find reds ‘heavy’ should like this 2012. The ‘lightness’ is something to watch for in a Beaujolais Nouveau. It is expected to be that. If it comes across with flavor, as the 2012 does, you have a winner.

So, I am impressed. I only drank half a glass. I was tempted to have more. But, I refrained.

I wholeheartedly recommend this Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau 2012.


I did not get a chance to get to a Liquor Store till 7:15 pm this evening. I did go to the local Hannaford in Alton this afternoon but they didn’t have any Beaujolais Nouveau though they did have the Yellow Tail Shiraz at $5.99 a bottle. I bought one. I like the Yellow Tail Shiraz.

So at 7:15 pm, on a Thursday night, I visited the quite large, well laid out and well lit NH Liquor Store in Wolfeboro, NH. I was the only customer.

I found the Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau 2012 display. Three cases stacked on top of each other, the top case slashed open to show the bottles.

No sign. No price!

The opened case was full! I asked the girl. Yes, I was the first to buy a bottle! That is a shame.

I suspect the 2012 will go on sale for $7.99 within the month. I will buy a few then.

Till then, get a bottle. ENJOY. Cheers.

But, these days tipplers, most likely being snobbish since ‘Nouveau‘ has never been a refined wine, are giving it a miss and just using the day as an excuse to celebrate. I, a great lover of all celebrations, independent of cause, religion or culture, am all for that, but ‘come on’ … lets raise a glass to the ‘Nouveau‘. I plan to do so tonight. I will let you know what I think. Swansea was where I went for my first degree, 1971 to 1974. It was very different then. Just at the start of the upswing.
