Expert Reviews

89 Points | International Wine Cellar , July 2013

Vivid ruby.  Lively dark berry and floral aromas show good clarity and pick up a spicy nuance with air.  Juicy, fruity and seamless on the palate, offering fresh black raspberry and cherry flavors and a bracing jolt of tangy acidity.  Closes with good energy and cut, leaving a bitter berry skin note behind.

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.
