Do NOT judge it on your first sip! {Smile} Give it a few sips and a few minutes.

Yes, your initial, overriding reaction is likely to be that it is TART. Yes, it is. But, tartness, from the tannin, is a hallmark of Beaujolais Nouveau. I guess it has to do with its ‘newness’.

Marked tartness has been a feature of Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau over the last 4-years. Of course I can’t tell you, exactly, whether the 2017 is more tart than what was the 2014.

In these reviews, which I have now done for a few years, totally on my own dime (without ANY help or interaction, whatsoever from Georges Duboeuf), I set out to be totally upfront. There is no reason for me to sugarcoat anything.

So, here we go.

The tartness grew on me — i.e., after a few sips I kind of liked it. It is a lingering tartness.

More aromatic than last year’s — I am sure.

Not bad at all, at all — after the first few sips.

It is, as was last year’s, a rather robust red. Very bold and in your palette. Those that like a full-bodied red will have no issues with it. Those with a more ‘delicate’ palette may find it too ‘in your face’.

Definite keeper — as has been the Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau over the last few years.

I am looking forward to my 2nd half-glass.

Once you get used to its tartness it goes down WELL.

I am happy.

Happy Beaujolais Nouveau 2017.

I will write another review after I have drunk a bottle — which will be by tomorrow. {Smile}

Cheers.
