91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November 2009

($34) Light, bright violet. Mineral-driven red berries and Asian spices on the nose, with nuances of pungent herbs and dried rose. Spicy redcurrant and wild strawberry flavors are complemented by a pungent floral pastille quality and gain power with air. The minerality returns on the finish, which is tangy, focused and impressively persistent. (Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant, Berkeley, CA)

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.
