Expert Reviews

91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - June 2011

Bright dark red.  Spicy red berries, cherry, rose petal and sandalwood on the nose and palate.  Juicy, suave and penetrating, with a lovely restrained sweetness in the context of the very ripe 2009 vintage.  A firm acid/tannin spine gives this Beaujolais cru terrific inner-mouth energy and lift.  The slowly building finish offers excellent cut.

typical beaujolais
by wilkins14108791
i like and am continually surprised by beaujolais; its rep in US is that it is over-hyped and weak But, if you accept it for what it is, can be terrific - this is one such fortunately; not much on the nose, not long on the finish, but yummy, good with food, very nice for the price; will not last; this is just what it should be - it is not a 100 point big rich cabernet but if you want a nice, grape-y food friendly wine that is good while young, and easy on the pocketbook, this is it

Delicious. Not usually the biggest gamay fan, but this could convert me.

Highly touted vintage. Plan to cellar some to see if it's up to the hype.

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.

Varietal Image

Gamay is the primary grape of Beaujolais, a region administratively considered part of the Burgundy wine growing region, but one that has a climate closer to that of the Rhone. Wine produced here appears in your glass in essentially three forms: Nouveau, Beaujolais Villages, and Cru Beaujolais.
