One of the great signs of the season is the release of the Beaujolais Nouveau.  The Beaujolais region in France has made a name for this wine largely through maintaining the tradition of its release and producing what is typically a pretty good wine.  That was until this year.

I picked up a bottle of George Dubeuf Beaujolais Nouveau 2008 for a after-Christmas family gathering.

I got home, chilled the bottle and later that evening eagerly opened the bottle and shared it with my family.

I was my sister’s reference to rubbing alcohol that truly summed up just how bad this wine was.

I’m not sure if perhaps this bottle was ruined in storage or transport, but I bought this from a local store that has never disappointed me in the past.

But sadly, this wine has.  The wine lacked any real flavor and instead tasted like I was drinking cheap whiskey from a plastic bottle.  Except the whiskey might have been tolerable.

Not Good to say the least.
