Duboeuf Beaujolais Villages 2010

Grape Variety: 100% Gamay Noir

Growing Region: Beaujolais, France

Owner / senior winemaker: Georges Duboeuf

TASTING NOTE:
Beaujolais-Villages takes its name from 39 winemaking villages in the Beaujolais wine producing area that has long stood out for the superior quality of their wines. "Superior" meaning - greater aromatic complexity, greater concentration and greater reliability.
The vineyard that the fruit was sourced - comes from one of the oldest winegrowing families in the Beaujolais. 'Les Vins Georges Duboeuf' was formed through the passion of a lifetime with wine by Georges Duboeuf. From the very beginning - he built on his reputation in restaurants of high quality, and it was in this way that his wines have won the approval from the world's great chefs. Georges Duboeuf wines are now found in over 140 countries - and he works closely with some 400 winegrowers in the region. Les Vins Georges Duboeuf is without doubt the most recognized Beaujolais wine brand worldwide.
In the glass you are greeted by a purple-magenta colour with a bright ruby hue. The nose has lifted notes of wild strawberry and cherry, fruit driven with a touch of earthiness. The palate is bright, pleasing and smooth, with good acidity and structure. A smooth, approachable wine with fine tannins, harmonious and a lively finish. Serve slightly chilled at 13-15°C.

CELLARING POTENTIAL:
Drinking perfectly well this summer; and over the next 12 months.

SUGGESTED FOOD MATCHES:
Perfect wine match with meat kebabs, bbq pork chops, pizza and creamy cheeses, enjoy.

Enjoy slightly chilled with good friends.
