I could be wrong but I detect a similarity with the Beaujolais Nouveau of 2014 and that is NOT a bad thing because the 2014 was a keeper.

Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau 2015 has a very fruity aroma. Very inviting. Kind of begging you to taste it.

Rich velvety color. Again extremely beteckning.

WOW! The first sip. Rich in flavor. Fills your whole mouth. Yes, fruity and tart. Sweet, but not that sweet. A biting, edgy sweet. Raspberry? Definitely not strawberry.

Yes, you can feel the tannin BUT in the case of Beaujolais Nouveau you are supposed to.

Yes, there is a definite aftertaste but that too is par for the course.

It goes down EFFORTLESSLY. You could drink a lot of this with relish, hardly noticing that you are imbibing in quantity.

Yes, another keeper. I can’t see much of a difference from last year. To I that is GOOD.

Georges Duboeuf has increased the price by another $1. So now we are at $10.99. Yes, it is worth it.

I like it. My biggest problem is going to control my intake. Yes, I could easily drink a couple of bottles of this now. But I won’t and I can’t. I did buy half a dozen. I will keep at least one for Thanksgiving.

Bottom line. Very good. Very pleasant. A Keeper.

Cheers.

Oh. I bought the 6 bottles from the NH Liquor Outlet in Concord. The main one just below Main Street, next to ‘Burlington Coat Factory‘.




Obama In His Snazzy Philippines Pineapple Shirt — I WisH I Still Had Some.

I used to have a LOT of this pineapple shirts from the Philippines. I now have none. I actually tried earlier this year to get one, online, but could not justify the price.

PLUS, to be brutally honest, I no longer have the figure for these translucent shirts, BECAUSE, unlike Obama, I wore them, they way they are SUPPOSED to be worn — with nothing underneath.

I used to get them from my adoptive father. He, especially when he worked for UNESCO, used to visit the Philippines often and he too liked these shirts — though he never really had the figure for them. OK. Full disclosure. He was GOOD friends with Ferdinand & Imelda Marcos! What can I say. Many times, when he visited Manila, in the 1970s, when he was stationed in Bangkok, he would stay at their Palace! Some of the pineapple shirts he had — and some which I acquired from him (sometimes by just helping myself from his closet) — had been given to him by the Marcoses! I even had one which was a genuine hand me down from Ferdinand. What can I say.

I just checked again. Amazon, to my amazement, does NOT have any! How is that possible. I, of course, Googled. WOW. $90!

IF anybody in the Philippines wants to go into business with me selling Pineapple Shirts in the U.S. please contact me. My contact can be found on the sidebar >>>>.

Smile. Happy Beaujolais Nouveau Day 2015.

Seems strange that the label used in Japan is different. Check this post.

Picture from Japan, shown in my Nov. 17 post — with 2015 clearly on the label.


Since 1am today (Eastern), Beaujolais Nouveau Day 2015, I have NOT being able to access the Georges Duboeuf Website. That seems very strange.

THEN I discovered that they have NOT updated their Twitter feed in 19 hours. So NOTHING on Beaujolais Nouveau Day. Ahh? This was at noon Eastern. So 6pm in France. Not good.

Georges Duboeuf Twitter at noon, Beaujolais Nouveau Day 2015. Last Tweet 19 hours ago. Nothing on the day. No picture of the bottle? WTF. Click to access their Twitter account.

Taken with my Panasonic Lumix FZ1000. JPEGs, as usual, with no post-processing, whatsoever. Straight out of the camera.


Original 5472 x 3648, ~7Mb,
JPEGs reduced to 1024 x 683, 398Kb, for display here.
So v. low resolution. Sorry.
NO post-processing whatsoever.
Straight JPEGs out of the camera.

Messing around with the built-in
‘One-Spot Color’ feature of the camera.
I had to read the manual to figure out how to use it.
