Six years out from "the vintage of the sun" this remains a tasty and distinctly un-Beaujolais Beaujolais. Oddly dry and complex, if you can find some, give it another try.

External Reviews for Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Villages Flower Label
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.
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.
Fresh and juicy, with spice and tobacco notes accenting the dark berry fruit flavors. Lightly chewy on the moderate finish, showing a chocolate note.
Straightforward, with cherry and grape flavors and a juicy finish. Ideal picnic quaffer. Drink now.
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.
A balanced, well-structured red, with ripe plum flavors giving depth. Pretty spice notes emerge on the finish.
