Domaine de la Madone Fleurie Cuvée Prestige 2007

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

Vintage: 2007
Type: Beaujolais
Country: France – Burgundy – Beaujolais – Fleurie

This wine is slightly different than your typical Fleurie since it has spent some time ageing in French oak.  because of this, it still has the flavours that you would expect with the gamay grape: berries and fresh fruit.  The oak adds a loving level of complexity and depth. This is a sophisticated Beaujolais . Excellent effort!

Domaine de la Madone Fleurie Cuvée Tradition 2009

Vintage: 2009
Type: Beaujolais

This is a lovely Beaujolais with an excellent flavour full of fruit. Nice acidity and easy to drink. Tonnes of fruit on the palette – almost bursting with flavour.  Nice hints of minerality as well.

A more serious Fleurie, though it is still quick youthful and fruity with a hint of frivolity. Excellent bottle overall full of fruits and light tannins.

Georges Dubœuf Saint-Amour 2009

Friday, December 10th, 2010

Vintage: 2009
Type: Beaujolais
Country: France – Beaujolais – Saint-Amour

This wine is an excellent value-for-money Beaujolais. From one of the larger producers in Beaujolais, there is a reason why Georges Dubœuf is so popular. Good marketing and a consistent reliable wine.

Full of fruit flavours, this wine is evokes joy and ease and is a fun wine that shouldn’t be taken too seriously. Lots of flower scents on the nose and a nice light ruby colour. Much more frivolity in this wine compared to the 2009 Juliénas

Georges du Boeuf – 2007

Saturday, September 5th, 2009

Vintage: 2007
Type: Fleurie
Country: France – Beaujolais

A good drinks wine, great with food. As Fleuries go, this one is very popular, probably because it’s quite easy to drink. This vintage doesn’t disappoint, though the bottle could probably sit a bit longer before drinking. Great with chicken or turkey.

Vintage: 2002
Type: French red (not sure of the grape)
Country: France – Beaujolais

One of my favourites. A great colour, excellent bouquet and an amazing flavour. It isn’t overpowering so it will go well with most food. If you can get a hold of a bottle, try it!
