Member Notes

by Fannin10580945
It's been about two years since I had one of these, or at least since I made any notes. It is immensely more satisfying now. Less overtly fruity, but much more nuanced. No sediment in my bottle, which was stored in a cool cellar. This remains an extremely well balanced and food friendly wine. I have no clue if yours is over the hill, but mine certainly isn't!
Not your father's Beaujolais
by Fannin10580945
Wow! This is superb. Darker than the typical Pinot Noir, this is earthy and full of fruit with excellent tannic structure. Would be excellent with roasted chicken/turkey or grilled salmon or lamb, or even pork. Extremely flexible food wine. Great stuff!
This wine improved quite a bit

My first few bottle were disappointing, but after some time in the cellar, it has improved significantly. There is more grip, the fruit and tannins are integrated into the wine in a way it wasn't previously.

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.

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.
