Duboeuf Sablons Saint Amour 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

85-86+ points David Schildknecht (Wine Advocate): Also recommended, but no tasting note given. (Aug 2010) When young, the wine has red berry characteristics (raspberries and strawberries) but also a touch of blackcurrant. Smooth and complex on the palate, where it develops its full range of aromas. Pleasant to drink over the next 2-3 years.

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

The appearance, as with many younger Beaujolais wines, is fresh and bright. Cherries and fresh raspberries are immediately apparent in the nose, but some vigorous swirling will reveal dried apricots and smokiness. Racy and streamlined, the acidity gives this wine its backbone with the delicate tannins rounding out the mouthfeel. This is a light-bodied wine that is both incredibly food-friendly and delicious on its own. Read more about this wine and others at: http://bit.ly/gznJmK

Kirsch, red fruits, floral and violets. When it is young it has the fruity aromas of Beaujolais. When it is older it will have the charm of Burgundy.

\ Effusively and sweetly fruity as usual, the 2009 Morgon Jean Descombes (tasted from tank) is scented with creme de cassis, black raspberry preserves and pear liqueur; silkenly saturates the palate with rich yet infectiously juicy fruit concentrate; and introduces a saline note that along with its sense of juicy freshness makes for a stimulating finish.\

Easily the best Beaujolais we've tasted in years, and the most enjoyable in recent memory; fruity and vibrant without being irritating, exhibiting a ripeness and silky texture reminiscent of Grenache or good vintages of Côtes de Beaune. It instantly won over a tasting panel heavy with Beaujolais skeptics.

This wine is an exceptional value. The outstanding medium to dark ruby-colored 1999 Morgon Jean Descombes (described by Duboeuf as the greatest Descombes produced in the last 20 years) offers subdued soy sauce and black fruit aromatics. It explodes on the palate with loads of dark, sweet cherries, and has exquisite depth, breadth, and focus. This opulent, lush, fruit-packed wine is concentrated, well-structured, and has cellaring potential. Projected maturity: 2001-2006+.

Saturated cherry, chocolate and cassis notes weave throughout this medium-bodied, firmly structured Morgon that has density and a lingering finish, Drink now through 2001.

Offers blackberries and hints of cassis in its expressive aromas. Lush, medium-bodied, and displaying outstanding depth of fruit, this satin-textured cherry, black raspberry, and spice-flavored wine also reveals a long, supple finish. Projected maturity: Now-2007.
