Duboeuf Fleurie Chateau des Bachelards 2006

External Review by WineExpress.com:

The Chateau des Bachelards is a well known property in the village of Fleurie, having produced some of the best wine in the region for generations. Georges Duboeuf offers this Fleurie as a single estate bottling which is very unique in this region, where most wines are sold as negociant blends. Fleurie of course is one of Beaujolais’ most popular and highly regarded single Crus. The estate vineyards are very old, most of the Gamay vines are over 60 years of age. The low yield grapes are deeply concentrated and rich. This wine is unusually full-bodied and expansive, seeming quite burgundy-like. The black cherry flavors run deep and suggest a wine that will continue to evolve over the next 2-4 years. On sale now, don’t miss it.

Georges and Franck Dubœuf have made a thorough selection of wines from Burgundy, the Rhône Valley, Bordeaux, the Loire and Languedoc, while giving champagne the prestigious pride of place it deserves. Bruno Vertut and Alain Beaurin, who staff the cellar, deliver specific advice recommending combinations of wine and food, making the most of a customer’s budget or suggesting new discoveries. A neat blend of refinement and relaxation make this a cellar for both ordinary wine-lovers and connoisseurs. Dubœuf, rue Marbeuf, a cellar like every cellar should be, where you quite simply find good bottles at the nicest price, together with the pleasure of getting sound and considerate advice. Georges and Franck Dubœuf have won recognition for their expertise in the art of wine tasting and selection, a perfect illustration of which is their cellar, just off the Champs Élysées. More than anything else, their one wish is to perpetuate, on Rue Marbeuf, one of the capital’s most Parisian shopping streets, a product marked by trade-mark simplicity and excellent value for money. This is where you find the best of the wine range from Georges Dubœuf. Beaujolais and Beaujolais-Villages rub shoulders with the 10 Beaujolais vintages of Brouilly, Côte de Brouilly, Chénas, Chiroubles, Fleurie, Juliénas, Morgon, Moulin-à-Vent, Régnié and Saint-Amour. Plus the Mâcon appellations of Mâcon, Viré-Clessé, Pouilly-Fuissé and Saint Véran. Whether fruity or flowery, lively or potent, for immediate opening or for long stays in a cellar, they all illustrate to perfection their Beaujolais, Mâcon and Burgundy identity. Read less
