A beautiful medium-bodied red wine with distinct aromas of fruit, strawberries, red and black currants as well as vanilla spice.The wine drinks with a fruity attack, followed by notes of strawberry and toasty oak with soft round tannins and a very long smooth and spicy finish. This wine is deliciously fruity and smooth and exhibits excellent balance!
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
Shows fresh grape and black cherry flavor, with just enough acidity. Decent little quaffer. Drink now.
Fresh and juicy, with spice and tobacco notes accenting the dark berry fruit flavors. Lightly chewy on the moderate finish, showing a chocolate note.
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.
Straightforward, with cherry and grape flavors and a juicy finish. Ideal picnic quaffer. Drink now.
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.
A balanced, well-structured red, with ripe plum flavors giving depth. Pretty spice notes emerge on the finish.
A medium ruby-colored, redcurrant-scented and flavored wine that is more tart than usual, but crisp, refreshing, and cleanly made; drink over the next year.
