Georges Duboeuf is a top négociant and this wine is a great value at about $15. You can’t go wrong with a nice Beaujolais at that price.
Gamay wines are light bodied in general and we would term this a middle-weight. Don’t worry if you’ve had a bad experience with Beaujolais Nouveau, which is a wine phenomenon more driven by marketing than flavor. This Beaujolais is a great all-round wine for dinner or your next party.
The nose is a bit closed, but the taste is a nice bright cranberry. It is rich and smooth on the palate and the finish has a a dollop of caramel.
It’s a vibrant, active wine, ripe with fruit. We recommend it during your next wine Tour de France.
