Good Beaujolais is rare even in decent years.
Good Nouveau Beaujolais is an oxymoron.
I quite agree. I am far far from being a 'wine snob', I drink what I like and reviews be damned, but there has been a marked decline in Beaujolais quality in the past 15 years. Scandal, adulteration, chemical enhancement, rush to market, etc., have all contributed to this.
But, I must also add, I have always regarded Beaujolais as a 'fun wine' as I would a Sangria or any table wine or house wine. Any notes I've taken while tasting have always been later unreadable dur to spillage!
Drink with food and enjoy! (chilled...of course)
