Georges Duboeuf Gd Fleurie Clos Quatre Vents 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

90-91 points David Schildknecht (Wine Advocate): The Duboeuf 2009 Fleurie Clos des Quatre Vents -- tasted from tank; and as usual, a cuvee from old vines treated to long, cool fermentation -- displays ripe blackberry and blueberry, ocean breeze, black tea, borage, and bittersweet iris perfume in the nose. Silken and expansive on the palate, this is a little less intriguing but even more generous than the corresponding Fleurie Grand Pre, finishing with soothing yet stimulating length, and likely to be worth following for 3-4 years. A very ripe and concentrated but awkwardly woody 'Prestige' bottling of Fleurie did not give me much hope for its post-bottling evolution. (Aug 2010)

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

Ripe, delivering black cherry, plum and smoke flavors with enough grip for food. Firm and balanced, fresh and clean on the finish. Should improve through 1998.

This knock-out 1995 Clos des Quatre Vents Fleurie reveals an opaque dark ruby/purple color, a flamboyant nose of black raspberry jam and flowers, dense, sweet, full-bodied flavors, explosive ripeness, yet finesse and harmony. This is a veritable fruit bomb in the mouth, as well as one of the most seductive and opulent wines I have tasted from this vintage.

Dark purple-colored with sweet cassis in a ripe but reticent aromatic profile; terrific fruit, purity, and ripeness, medium to full body, but closed and backward; drink between late summer and the turn of the century; an impressive, muscular wine.

A seductive red, packed with ripe flavors of raspberries and cherries, this has the smoky and meaty notes characteristic of ripe Gamay, and polishes them off with toasty oak notes. Alluring and harmonious. Drink now through 2001.

The flowers are evident in this Fleurie, with intense fresh fruit and floral aromas for a gamay. Scents of violets, floral strawberry and cherry place it as Beaujolais, though in a finer sense than you might expect.
