Winetasting Report: Beaujolais Nouveau 2013

I was able to duck into Arrow last night and try some of the Beaujolais Nouveau for this year. Overall, it’s an average year; nothing hateful, but 2011 was definitely better.

Joseph Drouhin $14

The nose is just a little off. Tighter than usual, with a little less fruit. Good balance, though – this is more like a regular Beaujolais than a Nouveau. OK. 

Bouchard Aine et Fils $12

Big fruit aromas and on the palate. Lots of cranberry! Pretty good – buy this for your Thanksgiving dinner.

Georges DuBoeuf $12

A little green on the nose, then flat and a little metallic tasting. Not good.

Domaine Rochette $14

The most complex of the bunch. Cranberry and cherry fruit, with just enough acidity. Pretty rich and dense, as well. Best of the bunch!
