Winemaker's Notes

The 2000 harvest in Beaujolais is completed and vintner Georges Duboeuf is truly elated by the excellent results. "What I, personally, like most in this vintage 2000 is the crimson red color of the wine with the dazzling mauve to purple reflections." The nose offers intense aromas of blackberries, violets, and fine spices. Round in the mouth, the wine gives a sensation of mixed berry fruits (strawberries, raspberries and red currants) with underlying tones reminiscent of cherries and plums.

The 2000 growing season was ideal from beginning to end. The rotation from the chilly early mornings to the intense heat of the afternoon created a good balance of nature and super-maturity in the grapes. Often, in these ideal weather conditions, it creates a 'phenomenon of concentration.' This is where the weight of the berries, reduced by the effects of time and heat, give us great intensity in the juice. These conditions give us a Beaujolais Nouveau that is robust, typical, well bred, generous, and mouthwatering.

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...
