This is a very nice wine, but for me (your mileage may vary), this is not what I am looking for in Beaujolais. Garnet in color, mostly clear and bright. The nose has cherries, baking spices, slight coffee notes and a bit of citrus. Full bodied. Medium tannins. On the palate, bold cherry fruit with spice and slight dark chocolate. Long finish. This drinks well on its own, but would be better served with a steak. Drink over the next seven to ten years.
