Georges Duboeuf Brouilly 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit beefy but also mushroomy and with some beetroot adding lovely complexity along with violets and wonderfully fresh red berry fruit. Rich and almost full bodied int he mouth this has fine acidity and some lovely ripe tannins but they are all enmeshed in this dense robe of wild blackberry and currant fruit. there’s not a lot of detail here, dominated as this is by fruit at the moment but the long finish reveals lovely spice notes along with a wonderfully dense bed of firm ripe tannins underpinning everything. A lusty glass of Beaujolais. 89pts

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

This Duboeuf entry is pretty good value and a more typical Beaujolais vintage (2010) than the rich, expansive - almost Burgundian 2009 (don't drink those 2009 Beaujolais Cru for a few years yet). This wine has bright cherry and a touch of banana on the nose with excellent acidity in balance with cherry sweetness on entry. Quite deep and rich for a Brouilly of this price range. Recommended. 87 points.
