Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Villages Flower Label 2011
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.Add winemaker's notes
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.

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.
This Beaujolais-Villages is just a great wine to drink, with fresh berry and cherry fruit and hints of cranberries. Like so many fresh, fruity Beaujolais, it tastes even better when lightly chilled.
Fresh and juicy, with spice and tobacco notes accenting the dark berry fruit flavors. Lightly chewy on the moderate finish, showing a chocolate note.
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 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.
Dark, ripe and juicy, with a fleshy core of black cherry and plum fruit. Lots of sweet spice and smoke notes, too, with another blast of fruit on the finish. Drink now.
