89(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , February 2011

Vivid purple.  Pungent aromas of blackcurrant, cherry compote, smoky herbs and licorice.  More closed than the Poncié today and showing very good depth to its chewy cherry and dark berry flavors.  Tannins build with air, adding shape and grip to the long, sappy, smoky finish.  Air this one out for a bit if you’re planning on drinking it anytime soon.

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.
