This was the first year I was able to participate in the excitement that is Beaujolais Nouveau. I haven't been able to go to the store to select some wines myself but I was able to try a glass of this wine at a friend's house. It was served slightly chilled. I was able to pull out sweet cherry and currant tastes from this Nouveau. I was surprised by how drinkable and enjoyable this wine is. I think it is a fun wine to be enjoyed with a group of good friends and conversation. You won't be disappointed.

After waiting until February of this year to try last year's Beaujolais Nouveau, this year I decided to go out on release day and pick up a bottle of Nouveau. I served this wine slightly chilled. Bright purplish red color. Definite banana and tropical fruit on the nose. In the mouth I taste some raspberry and cherry. A light, easygoing wine that I venture to say just about anyone could enjoy.

As a white wine drinker this is a red that I could drink. Not quite fruity enough for me but the tannins were soft and it had a soft finish but with a little sour note.

already 'better' than the Laboure-Roi, but not easy to drink... the best part is the bottle!

Bitter and hot with a slight carmel and cotton candy nose. A faulted wine that I would not recommend. It get worse as it evolves in the glass.

Heavy on the cherry. Perhaps a tad more acidic than I'd like. Nowhere near as bright and fruity as I remember last year's being. That said, I like this much more than other Nouveau I've had so far this year. If you're going Nouveau, this would be the one I'd grab.

decanted 3 hours, strawberry-banana perfume on the nose with notes of cherry, concentrated medium full body with notes of orange rind and leather, nice stonefruit finish.

The best one word description you can give to this wine is, consistent. Since the early 1990’s Parker has scored it between 88 and 91 points every year. Produced and bottled at the Domiane in Morgon, Georges DuBouef’s team imparts their expertise to insure that the quality is always there while the price remains unbelievably affordable. This 2008 got the usual 90 point rating and review from the Wine Advocate which read “There are all of 2,200 cases of the 2008 Morgon Jean Descombes, which represents a perennially popular benchmark for its appellation, not to mention value. This year, black raspberry and peach preserves rush from the glass and envelop the palate with silken textural allure and an almost liqueur-like presence. Yet for all of its suggestions of sweetness, this is also more than bright enough to refresh, and grips impressively with finishing complexity of animal nuances and floral inhalation. Expect this to be worth several years of cellaring – not that one would want to miss out on its youthful charms.”

Broad, suave and satin textured, this is a fleshy, concentrated wine. Powerful core of dark fruit.

Black raspberry and cassis dominate the Duboeuf 2008 Julienas, with iris-like floral notes adding allure in the nose, and a gentle, soothing, generously juicy palate impression rendering it impossible not to like.

Leuchtendes Rubin, mit violetten Reflexen. Vinöses Bouquet, Walderdbeeren und Himbeeren in ihrer schönsten Reife, feine Würze. Mundfüllende Aromatik nach kleinen, roten Beeren, gepaart mit etwas Zimtwürze, geschmeidig und ausgesprochen elegant, ausdrucksvolles Finale.

Tiefes Rubinrot mit einem Hauch von Violett. Wunderschöne Beerenaromatik, was typisch ist für den Gamay. Am Gaumen finessenreich und elegant, mit harmonischem Gerbstoffgefüge.
