Georges Duboeuf Brouilly Château de Nervers 2006

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Nice, ripe dark fruits packed in this - cherries, plums, blackberries - along with some muscle. Picks up a smoky note on the firm finish, where the flavors linger. Drink now.

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

Brouilly is the largest of the Crus. It is named after an inactive volcano, the Mont. de Brouilly, that its extensive vineyards surround. The soil, quite typically, is a composition of several types of granite. The wine offers generous aromas of red fruits and plums with light mineral accents. It is a well-balanced wine that encourages the rich, fruity character of the Gamay grape.

Has ripe, medium-weight black cherry flavors, a touch of chocolate and a round, lively finish. Ideal with salmon or roast chicken. Drink now through 2002.

A robust wine, built with a firm structure very similar to Burgundy's Pommard and features spicy plum and cherry fruit.

A cinnamon spice nose greets you; the fruit is sweet up front, but finishes dry. There are no tannins to speak of, but the structure and balance is fine. Light-bodied and stylish.

Waxy black cherries emerge from the nose of the 2005 Brouilly Chateau de Nervers. A medium to full-bodied effort with impressive depth and concentration of fruit, it slathers the palate with sweet black fruits that linger in its prolonged finish. Rich, powerful, and fleshy, it will be at its peak between 2007 and 2014.

Nice range, with black cherry and raspberry fruit augmented by briar, spice and mineral hints. Good bit of grip on the finish. Drink now through 2007.
