Winemaker's Notes:

This Brouilly, of an intense red color, offers powerful and harmonious red fruits aromas mixed with floral scents (violet). Filling the mouth with rich fruity flavors, this full bodied wine reveals a good tannic structure along with a beautiful balance. Drink now and over the next couple of years.

"The cool, earthy scent implies how savory this Brouilly will taste, a robust wine filled with meaty cherry flavor. The structure keeps those flavors firm and lasting, ready for a grilled hanger steak."
Wine & Spirits Magazine, October 2006

"Waxy black cherries emerge from the nose of the 2005 Brouilly Chateau de Nervers. A medium to full-bodied effort with impressive depth and concentration of fruit, it slathers the palate with sweet black fruits that linger in its prolonged finish. Rich, powerful, and fleshy, it will be at its peak between 2007 and 2014."
Barrel Tasting: 90-92 Points

About Georges Duboeuf:

For over 40 years Georges Duboeuf has been the Beaujolais region's most renowned négociant and is today regarded in the wine world as the "King of Beaujolais." Born in 1933 in Pouilly-Fuissé, 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 dream and founded his own company: Les Vins Georges Duboeuf.

Over the years, Georges has developed long-standing relationships with the region's top growers and winemakers. Georges is involved in every aspect of his enterprise and is known for his passion and his legendary palate. In 2003, the Duboeuf family opened a new, modern winery in Romanéche-Thorins. The following year, the Duboeuf and Deutsch families jointly purchased Château des Capitans in Juliénas. With annual sales of 30 million bottles, Georges Duboeuf is one of the world's best-known French brands.
