Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Folks, it's that time of the year - Beaujolais Nouveau time! "We" celebrate it for its novelty and that's about it, right? Or wrong? The 2016 Georges Deboeuf Beaujolais-Villages Nouveau showcases a nice balance of ripe cherry and raspberry fruit, moderate acidity and clean finish. Enjoy now, no ageing necessary.

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This year's offering from the "King of Beaujolais", Georges DuBoeuf, shows characteristic grapey ripe berries and sweet spice, in a dry, light-bodied red. Beaujolais celebrates the end of the harvest for food and wine, definitely something to celebrate! Enjoy soon with a charcuterie platter.

This wine from Georges Duboeuf Winery is a medium - bodied juicy red fruit, cherry, mouthwatering Beaujolais nouveau 2016. Continuing the storied tradition of quick-release red, offering typicity of the carbonic macerated Gamay varietal. Released world-wide Nov 17 th. Rated 87/100
