St.-Amour Cuvée St.-Valentin Duboeuf 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep, radiant ruby color, so typical of classic Brouilly. Intensely perfumed, offering a whirl of richly concentrated, jam-like fruits, such as damson plum, strawberry, peach and red currant. The texture is opulent and velvety. Brouilly is at its best while in the fullness of youth.

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

Julienas produces elegant and spicy wines from a region that gets its name from Julius Ceasar! This is dusty and mineral with a big bay leaf tone and a touch of seared beef but it lacks some liveliness. On entry this is fiercely acidic for this ripeness yet very simple with big black fruits. This finishes with some chemical notes and I can't say that there's much here for me to like. 80pts

'A light French red made from gamay grapes grown in southern Burgandy. Raspberry and plum scents lead through a light, succulent palate that finishes soft and refreshing. Served lightly chilled, it's great with cold cuts, pates and the like' (Ralph Kyte-Powell, Delicious, December 2008/January 2009).

Not a terrible wine, but not a good one. Somewhat spicy -- and inexpensive! Definitely better when you're comfortable drinking a cheap wine to get drunk.

Keep in mind I am reviewing this 2007 Beaujolais Nouveau in mid 2009. Way past its prime. I picked this up as well as the 2006 from my local grocery store for the amazing price of $4.50 each. They still have plenty more. The fruit that once was in this wine has long since turned to a vinegar and water taste. I have no doubt it would have been very good if drank within 6 months of coming out but 2 years is a bit much. Needless to say I have a pretty substantial headache the next day.

Rating 84 fruity nose that is short lived. Typical fruity simple Beaujolais style. You must be a Beaujolais fan to appreciate this. How WS could rate this that high is beyond me. Do they really go blind on the tastings?

Ouch - some harsh ratings given by the other tasters. I thought the wine was plain, and had a Boveril / yeasty nose, but that there were some highlights, including a very nice creamy texture. Cherry fruits that worked well with the leather tones. It was tight and had a tart finish, so a little air would help.

    Much maligned, Beaujolais Nouveau is not supposed to be a 'serious' wine. Its just a few months old - the grapes are picked, its fermented for a few days, and then its bottled and on your table. Take it as it is - simple, fruity, fun - and seasonal. Dont save it. This wine doesnt age well.

    Not as fruity as I was expecting and a bit heavier too. Very small hint of sweetness before the strong spice takes over. It's OK but its not one to rave about, even at the price it is.

    A disappointing effort from this normally reliable estate, the 2001 shows hints of raisin and leather on the nose and slightly cooked black cherry flavors along with a supple mouthfeel.

    The dark ruby/purple-colored 2001 Morgon Domaine Jean Descombes displays mouth-watering aromas of plums, violets, and roses, somewhat reminiscent of a Volnay's. This wine coats the palate with broad waves of cherry fruit. Its finish is long, supple, and reveals excellent ripeness. Projected maturity: Now-2006.

    Georges Duboeuf, a man not given to false propaganda concerning his wines, believes that the 2000 Morgon Jean Descombes is the finest he has tasted. It bursts from the glass with pure red/black fruit and stone aromas. On the palate, this medium to full-bodied wine is gorgeously refined, broad, and beautifully balanced. It offers loads of cherries, sweet blackberries, and plums in its serious yet forward personality. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2007.

    Offers a blast of maraschino cherry aroma, with solid ripeness on the palate. Hints of chocolate and earth on the finish. Drink now.

    The 2007 Morgon Domaine Jean Descombes sports a striking nose of black raspberry jam, cassis, and sweetly fragrant roses. Irresistibly luscious and bright, it saturates the palate with black fruits while also delivering persistent, wafting floral notes, tallow-like animal undertones and hints of salt and wet stone. Enjoy this unusually successful and seamlessly-ripe 2007 (and amazing value) anytime over the next four years.

    Ripe and very aromatic, with maraschino cherry, chocolate, bramble and spice notes supported by bouncy acidity. Long finish shows some nice grip; needs some brief cellaring to round into form. Drink now through 2006.

    Kirsch, red fruits, floral and violets. When it is young it has the fruity aromas of Beaujolais. When it is older it will have the charm of Burgundy.
