The third Thursday of November is the first day that the years Beaujolais Nouveau are available for sale, worldwide. I have a soft-spot for Beaujolais, a very unpretentious wine, but it’s difficult to find anything but Georges DuBoeuf in my area. I’ve never had a decent bottle from Georges DuBoeuf, but every couple of years or so, I try it again, since each vintage is potentially different, but the 2010 was just a sour mess.

Bottle of Georges DeBoeuf Beaujolais Neuveaus

It's a pretty label, so it's got that going for it.

There’s good Beaujolais out there somewhere, but Georges DeBoeuf sells vin de merde, and there’s not much else to say about it, except that it was $7.99.
