Georges Duboeuf Morgon Domaine des Versauds Beaujolais 2009 – A Beauty of a Beaujolais

Now this is my kind of Beaujolais!

100% Gamay from Morgon, Beaujolais, France.

SRP of $18 and available for as low as $15.

From the bottle:

“Full, rich, palate-pleasing flavors of cherries and kirsch personify this domaine Cru.

13.0% Alcohol”

I have to admit that I’m not a fan of the whole Beaujolais Nouveau phenomenon, although I will concede that it is brilliant marketing. Today’s wine, on the other hand, comes from the largest of the Beaujolais Cru and is a different matter entirely. But before we get to that, for more info on Beaujolais and the Cru sytem check out these two previous posts:

The 2009 Georges Duboeuf Morgon Domaine des Versauds Beaujolais begins with abundant and pleasing aromas of red berry fruit (strawberry, cherry), black raspberry and a bit of black pepper and mint. Tasting the wine reveals lots of juicy fruit on top of some good underlying earthiness. This is a very smooth wine with a dense structure and soft tannins. It ends dry with the fruit turning a bit sour and a bit of minerality coming through as well. Excellent!
