Typically pleasant cherry-plum preserve on the nose - though somewhat muted at serving temperature of 12 degrees Celsius. Herbaceous with violets as well. Deep, dark Bing Cherry red in color. Some Pinot-like qualities upon entry with similar brightness and sparkle but less expressive. Good tannin structure ensuring aging potential for this Cru to about 2014. Medium finish. Excellent value from a superb vintage!

First Beaujolais from this Cru. Chilled for about 15 minutes before serving. Light to medium bodied with distinct red berry tasted leading up to a cheery finish that slightly lingered. Very light and easy to drink. Good buy for a Cru Beaujolais in this price range...

    This is a beaujolais that even a big burgundy lover can appreciate. It's got great depth, intensity and a meatiness to it that most gamay wines do not. Very nice berry flavors along with just a hint of gamey and earthiness.

    One of the lighter Cru Beaujolais. This wine had all of the usual gamay character only with a deeper, more pronounced flavor. More tannic than your average Beaujolais. If you like Beaujolais or Beaujolais Villages and want to get into the Cru Beaujolais, this would be a good place to start.

    Red fruit with cherry flavors predominating. Medium-light body and tannins. A lighter Cru Beaujolais but still a good one. The texture and body of this reminded me a lot of pinot noir from Burgundy. A high 3.5 rating.

    Intensives Rubinrot mit violetten Reflexen. Ausgeprägt fruchtiges Bouquet. Weich und kraftvoll am Gaumen mit runden Tanninen. Lang im Nachhall.

    Frische Aromatik nach Himbeeren und Cassis. Markant, würziger Auftakt. Schöne Textur mit weichem Tannin und langem Fruchtfinale.

    St. Amour Domaine Des Sablons George Duboeuf Beaujolais St. Amour may be one of the less well know Cru Beaujolais but it is one of the most charming, delightful and perfumed of all the top Beaujolais. From the incomparable 2005 vintage comes this lovely St. Amour. This is Duboeuf's top wine from the vineyard. It will bring a smile to your face - especially at its gentle price
