Expert Reviews

91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March 2012

Bright purple.  Highly perfumed aromas of raspberry, rose, lavender and Asian spices.  Juicy, pure and penetrating, offering tightly wound red berry, floral and star anise flavors that gain depth with air.  A long, aromatic, sharply delineated finish features bright berry and floral qualities.  Incidentally, the excellent 2009 version of this wine has shut down a bit since last year but also seems to have put on some weight.  I'd let it rest for a couple more years before cracking another bottle.

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.
