Expert Reviews

92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July 2013

Deep ruby.  Sexy, floral aromas of red fruit liqueur, smoky minerals and licorice.  Silky and sweet on entry, then denser and spicier in the mid-palate, offering intense raspberry and bitter cherry flavors underscored by zesty minerality.  Shows excellent clarity and thrust on the seamless, sweet, strikingly persistent finish.  A really lovely blend of power and finesse.

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.
