This being Thanksgiving, you probably are hiding from family right now and dawdling online. Well, here is 2015’s Beaujolais Nouveau from iconic producer Georges DuBoeuf.image

Just in time for turkey day: Beaujolais Nouveau!

Appearance: clear, but medium plus purple with crimson highlights and a narrow rim.

Aroma: clean, mild granite, dried oregano, tomato leaf, oh, and raspberry, cherry skin.

Palate: It dry, tart, with mildly dusty tannins, adequate alcohol (13%), making for a medium bodied, fine grain textured red.

Flavors: medium, easy bright cranberry, cherry skin, noted mineral dust, tomato leaf, light vanilla. Medium length.

Conclusions: 2015 was clearly warm and kind to Georges DuBoeuf. This Nouveau has more alcoholic warmth than I have seen in years. Just enough to get into trouble. Mineral and herb fladies and snappy acidity keep this serious enough. Good (3 of 5) and entirely serviceable for today’s turkey.
