Mommessin in 2013. They have been producing Beaujolais since 1865. Click here for a very good article about Beaujolais Nouveau.

I happened to be at the Wolfeboro N.H. Liquor Store last night, buying the de rigueur 5 litres of boxed Merlot for my daily medicinal use, when I got talking with the Manager (who had been employed there for 8 years) about Beaujolais Nouveau. He assured me that he will have bottles for sale on November 21 — and how he gets the boxes from Georges Duboeuf well in advance but is prohibited from selling prior to THE DAY. I knew that. I was telling him about Beaujolais Nouveau parties in London when he asked me whether anybody else, other than G.D., sold Beaujolais Nouveau. I assured him that most certainly others did.

But this morning I did some research. Georges Duboeuf, by far, is the leading worldwide retailer of Beaujolais Nouveau. It appears that it is they that popularized the wine in the U.S. (if not in other parts of the world too). They might be the only mainstream supplier of B.N. in the U.S.

But, there are certainly others.

As far as I can work out some of the other vendors include: Joseph Drouhin, Mommessin (–>), Albert Bichot, Bouchard Aîné & Fils, Thorin and Signé Vignerons.

If you know of others or have a complete list please SHARE.

Here are JUST SOME of the pictures I found from a quick Google.
