Beaujolais Nouveau 2010

well IT is out there -- My liquor store had only two names in this years release , George duboeuf and Mommissan . I preferred the deboeuf. Do you get the nouveau release in your area. I'm on Vancouver Island ,that means that North America is a bigger island I can see on my way to work,sometimes I think we should move the island just a smig further away. Regards Gage

Is it my imagination or has the anticipation and excitement of the day the beaujolais nouveau became available, dimmed to a mere twinkle?
Thanks to this post, it 'reminded me' that it was coming out and LOL afraid my reaction is "ho hum"!
And it wasn't all that long ago when the ballyhoo of an impending release rivaled Oscar night, so wha' happened...
Some possible reasons may bei because of the glut of wine on the market at very reasonable prices and that I think if memory is accurate, that many of the last releases weren't worth drinking. Interesting subject and would love to hear your comments.

I bought a bottle today at Trader Joe's for only 8.99. It's "Georges Dubuef Beaujolais Nouveau". I haven't tried it let but will let you know what I think of it when I do....maybe tonight with my Eggplant Parmesan I'm serving. I believe the sign said that this is a limited offering...I wonder why?

It is limited because they make a small amount and rush to market on the third thursday of November every year. It was Gamey grapes on the vine a couple months ago. It is an event, and a predictor of the vintage to expect when they release the real thing. Hope you like it ,mine was easy ,the Dubuef was good the Mommesin not so much.
