Joseph Drouhin Beaujolais Nouveau 2009
A truly convivial wine. Owing to the careful blending of various terroirs, the result is a wine of great charm. It has a lovely raspberry color and a brilliant hue. The nose is both refined and intense, with notes of violet, peony and red fruit syrup. As you drink it, it feels fresh and silky. Both freshness and fruit remain for quite a long time on the palate.

DEDICATION TO THE DIVERSITY OF BURGUNDY With close to 90 different appellations, Joseph Drouhin offers a fascinating array of Burgundy terroirs in all their authenticity and subtle variations. A FAMILY HERITAGE For the last 130 years, Maison Joseph Drouhin has been in the hands of the Drouhin family. Today, the fourth generation is at the helm, animated by the same passion that inspired the founder of the company.
Bright purple in the glass. Nose of blue and blackberries with tones of tea. Wonderful bright fruit with an almost lambrusco-like zing. Some citrus tones on the finish. Not a long lasting wine. After some time open, it really got some more depth and a fair amount of complexity with some almost merlot-like qualities. Very nice. This one might age a bit!
Excellent Beaujolais. Nuances of blackberry and other smooth flavors are subtle. My fiancee and I generally like pleasant wines, and this is one. It will go well at our wedding and should please really everyone. One of the most versatile reds I've tasted. I have a feeling that this innocent and excellent wine may not satisfy long-time aficionados, because it's flavors are very well balanced and mellow. But we like this wine (and many Washington/Oregon wines) for this reason.

Ein gelungener Auftakt in der Nase und ein genussvolles, anhaltendes Finale - so lautet das Fazit dieses reintönigen Beaujolais-Villages, der zu überzeugen weiss. Die Aromatik ist typisch: blumig-fruchtig. Die feinen Gerbstoffe und die frisch-fruchtige Struktur verleihen diesem Rotwein eine attraktive Seite und eine zugängliche Art.
