Jane Staples 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.

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.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
