91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March 2011

Bright violet. Sexy, expansive aromas of black raspberry and cherry preserves, with floral and spicecake nuances and slow-mounting minerality. Energetic, mineral-driven red and dark berry flavors show alluring sweetness and a suave floral overtone. This seamless, pure Beaujolais finishes with excellent clarity and lingering floral and red berry notes. As delicious as it is right now, I'll bet that it will be even better in a few years and will hold for a good while after that. Cheysson's wine is raised in cement and stainless steel tanks and never sees wood.

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.
