Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Villages Flower Label 2009

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

Fresh and juicy, with spice and tobacco notes accenting the dark berry fruit flavors. Lightly chewy on the moderate finish, showing a chocolate note.

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 2005 Beaujolais-Villages, which sports a nose of thick chocolate, wax, and black cherries, is suave, pure, and enticing. Redolent with dark cherries, it is structured, focused, and medium-bodied. Drink this beauty between 2007 and 2010, giving its considerable fruit time to expand.

Therersquo;s good concentration of black cherry and plum in this round French red, and a nice balance of firm tannins. Smoke and herb notes add depth, making it a fine match for grilled meats. Donrsquo;t hesitate at this price. Drink now through 1999.

The bright ruby-colored 2001 Beaujolais (flower label) has a nose of sweet red cherries and roses. Light to medium-bodied, it reveals attractive berry flavors in an easygoing, refreshing style. Drink it over the next 1ndash;2 years.

Duboeufrsquo;s largest single cuvee mdash; their 2009 Beaujolais-Villages, assembled from six different villages and 15 lots from different growers, and destined for the U.S. mdash; is brimming with ripe blackberry and cassis; mouth-filling and plush; and retaining an attractive primary juiciness and hint of berry skin tartness that serves for some invigoration as well as contrast to the winersquo;s sense of sweetness in the finish. Donrsquo;t look for any intrigue here, but certainly for an excellent value that far surpasses the quality of the corresponding 2008. The vast and on the whole stylistically consistent range of Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais bottlings mdash; a majority issuing from individual domaines mdash; represents a reliable source of value, and this has seldom been more true (nor has the range - most, but not all of which, I tasted mdash; been more vast) than from 2009, which it is clear Duboeuf considers as fine a vintage as he has witnessed.

A fresh Beaujolais on the brighter, raspberry side of gamayrsquo;s cherry-scented fruit, this is clean and simple, with enough structure to serve with steak.

Straightforward, with cherry and grape flavors and a juicy finish. Ideal picnic quaffer. Drink now.
