The 2001 Beaujolais harvest has been completed and winemaker George Duboeuf is truly delighted with the excellent results. "2001 will be the year of fruit and aromas. An enthusiast of the the delicious and fruity Beaujolais Nouveau, I find in this 2001 vintage all the flavors, expression, and intense fragrances that I love. It is like a bouquet of flowers and a basket of berries, dominated by raspberry. With its well-balanced components, these wines are full of charm and enjoyment, with a liveliness that extends their lovely freshness. 2001 reminds me of the structure of the 1995 wines, the aromas and fruitiness of 1987 wines, with a touch of the 1996 wines which have aged beautifully."
"Beaujolais Nouveau is one of those products that always engenders the most speculative and passionate comments and debates. With your complete satisfaction in mind, rest assured that we shall make every effort to present you with an excellent Beaujolais Noveau 2001."
