    You can get some really great Burgundy's for $40, but you can get incredible Beaujolais for $40. That said, I'd rather have a $40 Bordeaux than a $40 Beaujolais. Just my personal preference.

    I would take the Beaujolais but I appreciate that I may be in the minority on that one.

    I like how food friendly cru Beauj is and wish I had access to a better supply. I need to buy more Fass Beauj.

    One of my local wine shops has been ramping up its Beaujolais offerings these past few years. It’s been great.

    Im in Cambodia at the moment and one thing that is really fun is buying random wines in supermarkets. They most likely get left over cases and such based on the cheap prices of bottles, but it isn't uncommon to find really really great wines with age on them for $10. My advice for buying out here to most of my expat friends is to always buy from a place that has good air conditioning and if you don't want to play roulette on bad bottles buy younger as there is less chance of spoilage due to heat, or just old bottles sitting around. That said, I don't mind playing roulette on these unknown bords. I wonder if the French influence has something to do with the easily found good French wine here.

    I would say in NYC about 5 years ago they starting pushing beaujolais really hard. It has been persistent.
