Georges Duboeuf Chiroubles 2010
Here the rich gamay fruit is more vibrant and we find a little spiciness on the nose. The granite soil imparts some minerality. Brimming with fruit and flowers, it is one of the most individual wines of Beaujolais. Lightly chill. Put out some cold cuts, thin sliced sopressata, good bread and sharp mustard on the side.
Made from the Gamay grape, so expect that hubba bubba purple grape kind of nose, but there’s also pure fruit red currant and cranberry juice. An easy drink wine with med- tannin load that leaves a slight dryness on the mid palate and tart acidity. Moderate level of fleshy berry flavours, clean and medium length finish. Drink now. This wine is perfect for a cool spring evening with slow cooked braised ox cheek in a barley and celery stew.
Light fruit nose.....light bodied wine with some nice fruit.flavors...nice.short finish
