Expert Reviews

88 Points | International Wine Cellar , March 2012

(note that the "X" indicates "10," as in 2010):  Medium red.  Fresh red and dark berry aromas and flavors are complemented by notes of white pepper, cinnamon and candied violet.  Juicy, focused and light on its feet, with nervy acidity adding lift and back-end cut.  Extremely easy to drink owing to its exuberant, fruit-dominated character and finishing bite.

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.
