Georges Duboeuf Gamay Beaujolais Nouveau 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Beaujolais Nouveau is a red wine made from Gamay grapes produced in the Beaujolais region of France- a thirty-four mile stretch of land in east-central France. It is the most popular vin de primeur (early product wine) fermented for just a few weeks then officially released for sale on the third Thursday of November." First time in screw cap closure." "Brooklyn - born Michael Mcleer, know as "Kaves", was chosen to serve as the artistic voice of the Nouveau Expression 2011 campaign. Designed the label for the 2011 Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau. He is a true artistic individual , yet non-intimidating. Kaves, by his personality and art , embodies the youthful,vibrant, enjoy-life-and-good-times expression of Beaujolais Nouveau : a wine with limitless ways to be experienced and enjoyed." From this sunshine, the grapes were splendid, a beautiful deep black, each grape small, perfectly ripe with a nice thick skin, sweet and dense: everything required to succeed and become an exceptional vintage! -Georges Duboeuf (September 21st 2011)

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

Spicy and a bit earthy on the nose with aromas of black grapes and jammy strawberry fruit. Light fresh and a bit dilute in the mouth with some finely ripe tannins adding a bit of mouthgrab to the easygoing cherry/strawberry flavors that pick up some earthy and vaguely herbal nuance on the backend. and through the short, somewhat sharp finish. 83pts

This is an interesting wine because when I first smell it, it reminded me of cake batter with raw eggs in them! The cake batter had hints of blueberries and light green spice in it. When I drank it, it is light-medium bodied with taste of blueberries, plum, vanilla cake batter with hint of hillside flowers and a certain greenness to it. it is lightly acidic with a soft tannins, well balanced overall. Refreshingly young. I can definitely see it as a good wine after abit of aging. Even after an hour, the taste lingered and I remember the smell so clearly! Its pretty impressive in that sense! It makes you want to go back and have a taste again! I increased half a rating because of that. The label on mine is different from the one here although it seems to be the same wine! It has more on its label saying special cuvee etc and it is pink and silver.

A 2011 Gamay from Burgundy, France. Ruby color with mid-rim variation. Dark fruits hints of cherry and raspberry with a hint of pepper. It has a long finish on the palette and balanced acidity. This wine will mature over time (peak time 2016-2020). Best served chilled to 55 degrees, and served with a grilled sausage and pasta dish.

Very typical of this mass produced Beaujolais Nouveau. Very light and playful just like the celebration. Easily obtainable and ready to drink now. Very fruity and a grape juice like feel. Very sweet with almost a watered-down nature to it. Always fun to get and try every year but nothing special from any of the years before.

2011 - Bright strawberry hue, aromas of pomegranates, bubblegum and strawberries; lively flavor notes of Jolly Rancher strawberry, sour cherry and fruity red raspberry with a hint of banana, having surprisingly broad mouth-feel and a moderate finish.

Bubblegum and pear nose. Bright, fresh tones. Richly flavored with bright, purple fruit. Gamy blackberry, plum and cherry. 11/19/11

The 2011 vintage just didn't seem as good as recent years. Other people at the tasting agreed. Had another wine makers version which people agreed was better, an unknown name to me which I can't recall. I think every year they say this year's wine is a great one, not this year.

Pretty and pure, with black cherry, spice and floral notes, and actual grip on the finish. Brings you back for more. Drink now.

Good purity up front here, with solid griottes flavor, though the structured finish becomes a bit taut in the end. Atypically structured, but reflects the qualities of the vintage.

Ever heard of Beaujolais Nouveau? No? Do you live in a cave? OK, never mind. This is the celebrated, annual first-release of Beaujolais, used as a gauge of the vintage and as a cafeacute; red mdash; usually served with a chill mdash; for millions of Parisians. Its delicious ripe and fresh crushed strawberry flavors are the essence of wine at its most charming and uncomplicated. Released in the late in the fall, this wine is really best suited to the summer, for sipping by the pool.

Always a great choice for the Holidays. Fresh and fruit forward with flavors of strawberry jam and cherry. The first arrival of the newest vintage!

Duboeuf is probably the most famous producer in the Beaujolais region, and his Nouveaus have been a holiday standard for our customers every year that we can remember. This yearrsquo;s edition is incredibly intense and full of fruit mdash; it tastes like a liquid Jolly Rancher! For those of you who have been faithfully following the Dubouefs, this is one of the best vintages in recent memory; if you liked last yearrsquo;s, you definitely wonrsquo;t be disappointed this time around.

This shows light tannins and flavors of pomegranate and plum. Therersquo;s fresh acidity and a floral finish. Drink now.

The first wine of the vintage, this is a charming rendition of the gamay grape: fresh, fragrant and delightfully fruity. Versatile enough to enjoy with your favorite holiday cuisine.
