91 Points | International Wine Cellar , March 2012

Deep ruby.  Intense, floral-inflected aromas of cherry and black raspberry, with a lively mineral quality emerging with aeration.  Fresh, sharply focused red and dark berry flavors stain the palate, with suave floral pastille and star anise accents contributing complexity.  A smoky nuance comes up on the finish, which clings with excellent tenacity.  I'd bet on this wine rewarding at least another five years of patience.

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.
