2008 Chateau de Chenas BEAUJOLAIS-VILLAGES (Burgundy, France)

A straightforward, lighter and tarter style of Beaujolais.

Bright, medium ruby. Bright, zesty aromas of sweet/tart cherries and crushed chilled grapes, with hints of flowers and salty stones. Bone dry and tart in the mouth, with lots of direct, tart cherry fruit and a crisp, if not long, finish. Not bad, and will be enjoyed by those who like a crisper, leaner style of Beaujolais. 84. Imported by Cellar Door Selections. Was about $12 at Central Market.
