Given that I grew up and came of age in Britain, in the 1970s, I have known of ‘Beaujolais Nouveau‘ all my adult life. I, a lover of all forms of Beaujolais (Beaujolais Fleurie in particular), started celebrating ‘Beaujolais Nouveau Day‘, i.e., Third Thursday of November, in Britain, with gusto, around 1980. Soon I was hosting a ‘Beaujolais Nouveau Day’ party, in a London restaurant — when I was the Customer Support Manager for ITT Business Systems (UK).

I carried over the tradition to the U.S.

In the U.K. you were not restricted to ‘Beaujolais Nouveau’ just from ‘Georges Duboeuf’. You could get many different bottlings.

Not so in the U.S. — at least up here in New Hampshire. It is all from ‘Georges Duboeuf’. That is OK.

Over the years I have got used to getting my Nouveau from ‘Georges Duboeuf’ and doing my review.

I am sorry to see Georges passing. He had to have been a good and great man.

I salute him and as he would want me to, I say ‘Cheers’ holding up a glass of red.
