I enjoy a glass of wine from time to time. Recently I got to try a new red that will soon be on the market – the 2012 Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau Wine.

For 30 years, wine lovers across the United States have eagerly anticipated the third Thursday of November and the grand unveiling of Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau. And every year, Georges Duboeuf surpasses expectations as the new vintage arrives amid a flurry of excitement and spectacle. If there is any wine that deserves such a festive welcome, it is certainly Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau – the first wine of the harvest and the first taste of a new vintage.


I received a bottle of 2012 Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau Wine. It’s a red wine made from the Gamay grape in the Beaujolais region of France. This wine isn’t aged like many. The grapes are hand picked and go from vineyard through processing and bottling to store shelf within 8 weeks. I expected this to be on the dry side like a lot of other red wines that I’ve had. I was happy to find that it’s quite fruity. Berries. Not only does does this wine smell fruity, but it tastes fruity too! This wine was sweeter than I expected and I enjoyed it quite a bit. I much preferred this wine cold over room temp.

The 2012 Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau will be available nationwide, along with the augmented reality app that allows users to experience Nouveau Magic, on November 15, 2012. Retail price will be $9.99.
