Expert Reviews

92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - Feb-12

Deep ruby.  Seductively perfumed scents of fresh red berries, cherry compote, potpourri and smoky minerals.  Juicy and sharply focused, offering incisive, mineral-driven black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors complemented by deeper notes of candied licorice and black cardamom.  The red fruit and floral notes carry through on the impressively long, linear finish.  I like the contrast between this wine's vivacity and the the richness and power of the Javernieres.

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.
