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

Less beefy than the house bottling this none the less shows some bloody, meaty aromas paired with chamomile and dried herb aromas over a base of wild berry fruits. A bit blocky in the mouth, this has bright acidity adding a soft orange rind cast the the wild strawberry fruits on the palate and the tannins still show a bit of firmness warranting another year or two in the cellar. The finish is tight and a touch austere, very firm and ultimately rather long and frankly elegant even though there is a toughness to the tannins. For the future. 88pts

With a nice scent of raspberry with a hint of banana and candy apple, this Morgon is quite on; the entry is smooth, somewhat light for the Cru, but still meaty and gritty with moderate tannin. There is raspberry and cream on the medium finish. Will age a few years, but excellent for current drinking. Good Price to Quality and far, far superior to a simple Village wine. 89 points.
