Expert Reviews

93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November 2009

($29) Ruby-red. Spicy black raspberry, blueberry, Asian spices and faded rose on the captivating nose. Rich, broad and sweet, but kept fresh and focused by zesty minerality, which adds urgency to the deep dark berry flavors. The sweet finish features a chewy impression of extract, suave minerality and vibrant length. This is already very alluring but I'd stash mine away for at least another five years. Coudert also showed me the regular bottling of his 2001 and 1996 Fleuries. The 2001 is a study in elegance, with spicy red fruit character and admirable freshness. The 1996 is deep, powerful and eerily Rhone-like in its expression of dense dark fruits, smoke and black olive. It is evolving at a snail's pace, at least in the Coudert cellar. (Louis/Dressner Selections, New York, NY)

Beaujolais
About Beaujolais

Made from the Gamay grape, the red wines of Beaujolais are mostly exuberantly fruity and brisk wines that are often served lightly chilled for added refreshment. There is also a small amount of white Beaujolais, made from Chardonnay, but little of this is exported to the U.S. Today, the overwhelming majority of Beaujolais production is controlled by negociants, of whom Georges Duboeuf is the undisputed king.
