better with time
by Albarino543173
An excellent Beaujolais and quite unlike any I have ever had. Fragrant yet tight nose on opening. Well balanced, great color, a bit too structured and tannic for my tastes upon first sampling. Day 2 was another story, perfumed nose with floral accents and violets and red fruit. Mouth feel is soft and supple with ample structure and good fruit. This could use cellar time to unlock the genie.

opens with a rush of sharp berry and heavy tannic bite. Then it opens into a layered smooth mouthful of chewy aromatic fruit. finishes with a long elegant flavor ride. The combination speaks of some aging potential. This is one of the finest Beaujolais I have ever had.

Loved this Beaujolais-Villages. This is just the flavor I love in a Beaujolais.


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.
