2003 DeBouef Julienas Prestige
88+ Very nice. Big and structured for a Beaujolais. Juicy nose. My younger daughter said it smelled like chicken, too. I couldn't quite identify chicken, but there is a little something animal in the nose. Broad ripe middle palate, narrows on finish. Little bit of tannin at the end. Will easily last for another year or more. In fact, the finish will probably broaden out by the end of 2005. $11.79 at Spec's on Holcombe.
