2009 Georges Duboeuf Julienas "La Trinquée"

SKU #1060949

According to Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Duboeuf 2009 Julienas La Trinquee, named from the sector of its appellation farmed by the several growers who inform this wine, is intensely-fruited and darkly-hued, featuring creme de cassis and dark cherry preserves, tinged by herbs and coffee. The vast and on the whole stylistically consistent range of Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais bottlings--a majority issuing from individual domaines--represents a reliable source of value, and this has seldom been more true (nor has the range (most, but not all of which, I tasted) been more vast) than from 2009, which it is clear Duboeuf considers as fine a vintage as he has witnessed..."

Medium-deep ruby in color, this wine possesses aromas of a well-made Cotes-du-Nuits villages Burgundy with meaty undertones, upfront, opulent notes of violets and cherries. In the mouth, it is bright, flashy with some mild cedary undertones, wonderful complexity and a pretty, lengthy finish (Jim Barr)

Wow really impressed with this, thanks Jim! Deep Dark cherry, dusty minerality, fruit is fresh and juicy and complicated by surprising pepperiness. Structured and fleshy, love it. 92

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Gamay

- Ah, poor, oft-maligned Gamay. Once widely planted in Burgundy, today the grape is largely confined to Beaujolais. The varietal, officially called Gamay Noir à Jus Blanc is vigorous, early-ripening and can grow in cooler climates. The grapes naturally high acidity, low tannins and low potential alcohol lends itself to exuberant, fruity wines, ranging from the early-release Beaujolais Nouveau, to the more serious Cru Beaujolais from villages like Brouilly, Moulin-à-Vent and St-Amour that are steadily gaining in popularity (and can age remarkably well). Outside of Beaujolais, Gamay is also grown in small amounts around the Loire where it is called Anjou Gamay and Gamay de Touraine. It is also grown in Burgundy's Côte Chalonnaise where it is blended with Pinot Noir, as it is in Switzerland.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Beaujolais

- Region in east central France, often considered a part of Burgundy, but really quite distinct. The principal grape grown here is Gamay Noir. Familiar to many as the source of the Beaujolais Nouveau, the first wine of the vintage, Beaujolais is often fresh, fruity and very appealing red wine. Besides the straight Beaujolais, there is also Beaujolais Villages, and what is known as Cru Beaujolais. The 10 individual Crus, such as Moulin à Vent, Brouilly, Fleurie, Julienas, St. Amour and Chénas, each have their own character, and much more depth than someone who has only tried a simple Beaujolais could ever guess. These often represent value-priced, lovely, food-friendly wines.
