Editorial Reviews for Beaujolais Villages Chateau de Vierres. Georges Duboeuf
Rather floral on the nose with an edge of caramel/black licorice candy framing the core of juniper tinged wild black and red fruits all laid over a bit or dark moist earth. legnat on entry, this has lovely ripe fruit, blackberry tinged aromatic in the mouth along with subtle african violet, licorice and earthy tones. Lively acidity brighten the palate and the tannins, slightly raw and stemmy add a zesty underlay to the fruit. Finishing very cleanly and fresh with real energy and emerging elegance this is drinking perfectly today. 90pts
Spicy and floral on the nose with plenty of herbal accents to the soft strawberry fruit. very broad and wide open in the mouth with raspberries and strawberries. Fruity and simple but fresh and with enough structure to remain firm in the mouth though this is a touch creamy at times. 85pts
Intense and oper fumed with herb stem, thistle, beet root aromas layered over a base of roasted raspberry fruit. Bright, crisp and rather transparent in the mouth this shows off some almost black raspberry fruit framed with softly toasty notes and a gentle earthiness. lue fruit aromas emerge on the backend along with some beet root notes all leading to a fresh, clean and simple finish with lovely raspberry notes. Really lovely already. 87pts
Julienas produces elegant and spicy wines from a region that gets its name from Julius Ceasar! This is dusty and mineral with a big bay leaf tone and a touch of seared beef but it lacks some liveliness. On entry this is fiercely acidic for this ripeness yet very simple with big black fruits. This finishes with some chemical notes and I can't say that there's much here for me to like. 80pts
I bought this bottle of wine from my local supermarket where it was on special offer for £5.Brouilly is the largest and most southerly of the 'Cru Beaujolais' AOC's and is named after a hill [extinct granite volcano] called Mount Brouilly around which the grapes are grown.Another Cru Beaujolais,the Cotes de Brouilly,is an AOC where the grapes are grown on the actual slopes of this hill.This is about 15 miles south-west of the town of Macon.Like all Beaujolais Brouilly and Cotes de Brouilly are made from the Gamay grape but unlike the rest of Beaujolais up to 15% of other grapes are allowed although few producers do this.Gamay is a cross between Pinot Noir and a white grape called gouais introduced by the Romans from Central Europe.Georges Duboeuf [ www.duboeuf.com ]founded his negociant business in 1964 which he still runs today and it now produces 2.5 million cases of wine a year He is very well known and sometimes called the King of Beaujolais.I started my bottle the other evening with my dinner of roast chicken.There is a blackberry or cherry like fruit there but the tannins are fairly strong.Perhaps it would improve with more bottle age.Overall I would say this is an OK bottle of wine but not one to write home about and not one I would buy again.I have had better Beajolais than this.The Eric Morin Chiroubles and Morgon as well as the Herve Varenne Morgon are better wines
Nicely perfumed with florals and ripe berry fruit. Lovely violet tones. Lavender laced bery flavors with good, bright acid. Warm and red. 11/19/11
nice fruity nose.....medium bodied, fruity mouthfeel...with a long lingering finish....
Can't go wrong for about $10. Bright cherry fruit. A little spice. Dry. What a wonderful casual sipping wine!
'A light French red made from gamay grapes grown in southern Burgandy. Raspberry and plum scents lead through a light, succulent palate that finishes soft and refreshing. Served lightly chilled, it's great with cold cuts, pates and the like' (Ralph Kyte-Powell, Delicious, December 2008/January 2009).
Not a terrible wine, but not a good one. Somewhat spicy -- and inexpensive! Definitely better when you're comfortable drinking a cheap wine to get drunk.
Keep in mind I am reviewing this 2007 Beaujolais Nouveau in mid 2009. Way past its prime. I picked this up as well as the 2006 from my local grocery store for the amazing price of $4.50 each. They still have plenty more. The fruit that once was in this wine has long since turned to a vinegar and water taste. I have no doubt it would have been very good if drank within 6 months of coming out but 2 years is a bit much. Needless to say I have a pretty substantial headache the next day.

A Chardonnay wine from Burgundy in France. 2010 Georges Duboeuf Macon Villages 750ml
Der Fleurie mit seinem kräftigen Duft und seiner fruchtigen, seidigen Art ist der Inbegriff eines Beaujolais.
Auge: Rubinrote Robe; Nase: Nachhaltigem Geschmack; Gaumen: Noble Tannine mit seidiger Fülle; Finale: Harmonisch
Im Bouquet typisches Aroma nach Rosen, leicht würzig nach Vanille. Kräftiger Geschmack, mit feiner Tanninstruktur.
Frische Aromatik nach Himbeeren und Cassis. Markant, würziger Auftakt. Schöne Textur mit weichem Tannin und langem Fruchtfinale.
Die Saftigkeit der Gamay-Traube kommt beim «Tour du Bief» ganz besonders zur Geltung. In der Nase Aromen von Himbeeren, Erdbeeren und Caramel. Im Gaumen fruchtig und saftig. Ein unkomplizierter Wein, der schon nach der Flaschenabfüllung Spass macht.
Rubinrot, violette Akzente. Reife Pflaumen und Brombeeren, auch eine Spur Cassis und rauchige Noten im Bouquet, ergänzt durch den feinen Duft verblühter Rosen. Sehr harmonisches Gaumenbild, das an einen Korb voll roter und schwarzer Beeren erinnert, ergänzt durch etwas Zimtwürze und schwarze Schokolade; insgesamt sehr samtig und rein, harmonischer Abgang.
An intense colour that fluctuates between deep ruby and dark garnet. The Moulin a Vent reveals floral and fruity aromas dominated by violets and supported by a hint of cherry. Tannic, fleshy and subtly spicy, the Moulin a Vent develops complex flavours that combine finesse and harmony. It is characterised by a remarkable length.
