This wine displays a sumptuous deep red color. Its intense, complex nose offers an array of fruits, from peach to raspberry and black currant, with a subtle touch of cinnamon. Ample structure and excellent balance will allow this wine to age in bottle quite gracefully.
"This 19th century château has been renovated (the domaine dates back to the 18th century) and the wine — off of 15 vineyards — is a joint venture between Georges Duboeuf and importer W.J.Deutsch and Sons. Pure, bright cherry fruit and some soft oak; fresh, complex and balanced with length and pinotesque character." 90 Points
The Tasting Panel
It captures the classic bright beaujolais flavor profile. A very pleasant wine.
I am a regular guy but an exceptional cook. This wine is the perfect compliment to my tandoori rack of lamb with quinoa, tabouli, sliced fig and grilled garlic pita dinner.
Accidentally brought this to a beaujolais nouveau party and it was a really nice change from all the rest of the nouveau wines because this bottle actually tasted like wine. :-)
