Nov. 16, 2012.


I was visiting the ‘small’ (auxiliary) NH Liquor Store on Fort Eddy Road, Concord, NH, this afternoon and as is my wont of late checked on the price and availability of the Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau 2012.

Kind of bad news for us on both fronts, but good news for Georges Duboeuf and the NH Liquor stores. The price is still $9.99 (with no discounts in sight) and they only have 3 bottles left. I talked to the manager. Per him that is all they have. So we are unlikely to see it get discounted in January. Most likely those three bottles, prominently placed at the front of the store, will get swept up in the New Year’s Eve buying binge.

At the Market Basket, 3 doors down on the same mall, they had 9 bottles left, again at $9.99. Those were on the ground, next to the main aisle. I am surprised they have not got kicked. Given their location, they may last a bit longer unless somebody runs into them with their cart.

I am sure that you will be able to find a few bottles here and there into 2013, especially online. Plus, there are other labels too.

But, this is just a heads up. Supplies are running out. If you fancy another bottle or haven’t had a bottle as yet, I would do my best to pick one up this weekend. There might be more bottles left at supermarkets as opposed to the Liquor Stores.

Enjoy. It was a good year.

Happy New Year. Hear is to Beaujolais Nouveau 2013. May it be another cracker.

I had thought we might see a price drop in the awfully compelling 2012 Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau from $9.99 to $7.99, now that November had come and gone. This has been the case in the past though that might have been after Christmas. I will keep an eye.

Per the Wolfeboro Liquor Store, the Saturday after Thanksgiving, the ‘Nouveau’ was selling well. They claimed to have sold 3 cases in the two weeks. Not sure if that is good or bad. They had three cases on display when I bought my bottle on ‘Nouveau‘ day. They were still using the same stacked 3 cases display. Could have been three different cases, or just a new case on top, the other two the same. I was at the Rochester Hannaford’s the day before Thanksgiving. They have a large wine aisle — double width. They had the same 3 case display, but only 2 bottles were missing from the top case. Again not sure how many cases they might have sold prior to that. I will stay on top of this and let you know as soon as they go on discount. Promise.

My favorite Beaujolais.

I just called the Gilford, NH ‘Liquor Store’ (the nearest to me) to check on the status of Beaujolais Nouveau.

The lady I spoke to, was very nice, but had never heard of Beaujolais Nouveau. But, she very kindly went off to find out and came back with a treasure trove of information. Wow.

They already have cases in the store BUT cannot sell them till tomorrow.

I had wondered about that. It appears that what they have is indeed from Georges Duboeuf. So it would appear that Georges Duboeuf get early shipments from France — which kind of debases the whole thing. Hhmmm. I will have to look into this.

They weren’t sure of the price, but given that I can be very persuasive I got them to open a case and scan a bottle. It scanned at $9.99. I think that is par for the course; the online $7.99 price not including shipping.

While looking for the phone number for the Liquor Store I happened to stumble upon the official NH November 2012 price list.

This is what they had for Beaujolais.

They have the G.D. ‘Villages‘ for sale at $7.99. That is a decent price for a bottle of this. ‘Villages’ is basically the ‘generic’ Beaujolais, the name itself denoting a large, diverse wine growing region.

If you want to try some ‘fancy’, but still affordable, ‘Beaujolais’ there is the ‘Brouilly’ (at the top). That is a decent wine, but not my favorite ‘Beaujolais’. ‘Fleurie’ is my favorite, though, of course, it changes from vintage to vintage, and taste is a very personal thing. I am AMAZED that they don’t have ‘Fleurie’ on the list. I even did a search on it. Nada! Wow. Must be a reflection of us in NH. ‘Fleurie’ is slightly upscale, but not that upscale.

Anyway, enjoy. Rejoice. Doing these posts is making me thirsty. I have to be in Wolfeboro tomorrow to take Devanee for her ‘Clearlakes Chorale‘ practice. The Liquor Store there is open till 9pm. I might pop down and get a bottle as a treat — for winning the election. I will keep you posted.

Cheers.
