No, I don't think any of us are that interested!
What is more telling is the way that price of some of the better Beaujolais is escalating in Euro terms. For example, many of Foillard's crus now exceed €20 here and the Morgon's of Marcel Lapierre >€15 in most places. The Fleurie and Brouilly 2010 from Vissoux bought last week were c.€13. This is no longer the cheap and cheerful wine which I remember from my 20s.
