Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Villages 2020
|Region||France, Beaujolais, Beaujolais Villages|
This Beaujolais-Village flashes a brilliant deep garnet color as it displays incomparable fruitiness in the purest expression of Gamay. Intense aromas of black fruits and fragrances of crème de cassis start in the nose and quickly moves down to the full-bodied, round and vinous palate, that benefits from delicate tannins. This Beaujolais-Villages offers a Southern France vision of Gamay that will retain its expressiveness for two to three years. This wine is great as an aperitif, it also works well with appetizers and charcuterie, such as prosciutto and other salty meats, pulled pork sliders, soft cheeses and light pasta dishes.
The 2020 Beaujolais-Villages offers more blue fruit than the Beaujolais. The palate is sweet and plush and nicely defined. Nothing complex, but it offers clean plummy fruit on the finish.
