Georges DuBoeuf, Beaujolais Nouveau 2020, France
Tasting Note: A riper-vintage Beaujolais Nouveau from George DuBoeuf that swims in ripe, red fruit.
Deep-intensity purple in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of red plum, bubble gum, overripe red cherry, crushed raspberry, strawberry and dried blossom.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied Beaujolais Nouveau has bright, medium-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity, and completing with a floral, medium finish.
The wine is what is should be.
Young, delicious and fruity, and I’m enjoying the opportunity to finally drink in 2020, a year we shall not soon forget.
Bottle Note: The first wine of the harvest. Label art “Russet Vines” by Maeve Croghan. Experience the first wine of the harvest with family and friends. Enjoy life’s simple pleasures and nature’s seasonal gift. Enjoy on its own with your favorite food. Enjoy slightly chilled 57-59°.
