One can easily compare Chiroubles to a superb model elegantly dressed in bright red silk. In taste, it proves to be the most ethereal of Beaujolais wines, all the while proudly bearing the stamp of delectable red berries. It offers the taster the pleasant sensation of gliding over the palate. According to a local poet, infatuated with all that is beautiful in this world, Chiroubles is literally "the extravagance of Beaujolais."
"In part due to hail in this sector, the volume of Duboeuf 2010 Chiroubles is small, but the quality is admirable. Coriander-dusted red currant and red raspberry on the nose carry over onto a bright, juicy, positively tart, buoyant palate. There is a savory underlying sense of meaty pan-drippings that, combined with vivacity of fruit, make for mouthwateringly good value. Duboeuf notes that the individual, grower-specific components of this cuvee were especially disparate in character from one another. They have come together very nicely, then. "
