Wine Style Guide
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
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
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%.
An intense, brilliant cherry color with purplish tints. Complex nose with red and black berry aromas (raspberries, redcurrants, blackcurrants). A smooth wine with fine tannins, harmonious and complete. Ideal for all occasions, from aperitif to cheese.
Light & Fruity
Love this little wine! Chill slightly before serving and this is a beautiful stand alone glass of wine or pairs well with chicken or fish dishes. Great value!
Average to good Beaujolais. Flavorful but not my cup of tea, uh wine.
Light & Fruity
I feel somewhat cheated as to that of what the expectation of that in Beaujolais Villages. Dubouf is pretty consistent, although at one time tried to dupe the people poring past cheap vintage with new, yet they are generally reliable when buying theirs as a grab and go wine with an ease of reliability in quality; Clean, floral enjoyable with just about any meal, a little heartier compare to that of his Beaujolais Nouveau's, yet not much more from that. I was a little disappointed as I have had a lot better in the past such as the 2009 vintage, was excellent. I found this one blasé, cheap, very light almost watered down; missing its premise. Somewhat enjoyable, yet I feel it would better drinking at a solid $7.00 bottle, then that of a $12.00 in which I paid. I score 80 -82 points.
Light & Fruity
was ok the first day, better the second, and good the third. I didn't do a good job of pairing the wine with the dinner I was having and that may have been the issue.

(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 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...
