Expert Reviews

92 Points | International Wine Cellar , July 2013

Bright violet color.  Pungent aromas of raspberry liqueur, fresh rose and licorice, lifted by a tangy mineral quality.  Silky and pliant, boasting striking verve to its flavors of red berries, floral pastilles and spicecake.  Youthfully energetic and stony on the finish, which shows appealing sweetness and just a hint of tannins.  Lively in the style of the vintage, but showing surprising depth and power as well.

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.
