Style: Light & Fruity

Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 13.0%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

This Beaujolais-Villages displays a deep, luminous cherry color, red with bluish tints. The bouquet offers ripe red fruit character, suggesting strawberry and black currant, with a touch of cinnamon. Velvet-like in the mouth, with soft tannins, it is well-balanced and complete. A wine which lends itself to all occasions, from the apéritif to the cheese board.

Critical Acclaim

"This may be the best Beaujolais-Villages Duboeuf has made to date, its depth immediately apparent in the color and buxom dark cherry scent. The generous texture is built on cool, juicy fruit and warm, granitic tannins. It's simple and fresh, with a buzz of electricity in the tannin that drives a subtle minerality. At $10, this is a super value to buy by the case. "
88 Points

"Duboeuf’s largest single cuvee – their 2009 Beaujolais-Villages, assembled from six different villages and 15 lots from different growers, and destined for the U.S. – is brimming with ripe blackberry and cassis; mouth-filling and plush; and retaining an attractive primary juiciness and hint of berry skin tartness that serves for some invigoration as well as contrast to the wine’s sense of sweetness in the finish. Don't look for any intrigue here, but certainly for an excellent value that far surpasses the quality of the corresponding 2008."

Learn About Duboeuf Map ItMap It

For over 40 years Georges Duboeuf has been the Beaujolais region's most renowned negociant and is today regarded in the wine world as the King of Beaujolais. Born in 1933 in Pouilly-Fuisse, the son of a winegrower, Georges began selling his family's wines from the back of his bicycle to now-legendary local chefs such as Paul Bocuse and Paul Blanc. In 1964, Georges realized his...

Learn About Beaujolais

(boe-show-lay) Upon hearing Beaujolais, many think of the large celebration for wine that comes out the 3rd week of November, that year's vintage of Beaujolais Nouveau. But the region of Beaujolais, situated at the bottom of the Burgundy AC, is more than just the nouveau. Some Beaujolais wines can be kept (gasp!) for up to 10 years! Those are usually the Cru Beaujolais and are...

Learn About Gamay

Gamay (gah-MAY) Beaujolais' Baby Gamay is a pale colored grape, best associated with the region of Beaujolas. In fact, few regions or grapes are so wholly intertwined with one another. After being universally rejected by the rest of Burgundy in the 14th century, Gamay found its niche a bit further south, in Beaujolais. Beyond that part of France, Gamay can also be...
