Georges Duboeuf 'Flower Label' Beaujolais Villages 2015

Overview

This Beaujolais-Villages displays a deep, luminous cherry color, red with bluish tints. The bouquet offers ripe red fruit character, suggesting strawberry and black currant, with a touch of cinnamon. Velvet-like in the mouth, with soft tannins, it is well balanced and complete. A wine which lends itself to all occasions, from the aperitif to the cheese board.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The soil is made up of granite and decomposed schist. Harvest is done manually, with whole bunches, unstemmed. Indigenous yeasts are used for fermentation at temperatures between 79°F-83°F. Maceration is between 6-8 days.


Interesting Facts
Beaujolais-Villages takes its name from a number of wine-producing villages long identified for the superior quality of their wines. In this instance, “superior” refers to greater complexity in bouquet, higher concentration, and deeper flavor. Its distinctive character sets a middle ground for Beaujolais, with its unique casual charm and the prestigious Top Ten Cru Wines to the north. If one could compare a glass of joyful Beaujolais to Mozart’s Cherubino, then Beaujolais-Villages would be Figaro-more mature, worldly and self assured. Beaujolais-Villages is that ideal, multipurpose red wine we all look for in a wine.
