2009 Domaine de la Voute des Crozes COTES de BROUILLY (Beaujolais, France)
Jet black ruby with dark purple highlights. Intense nose of crunchy cherry candy, cracked stones, and a hint of Juicy Fruit gum. Intensely minerally cherry and plum skin flavors. Tight and bone dry, with a surprisingly (for a Beaujolais) amount of tannin in the finish. Good acids too. This wine will be better in a year or so, but it is very enjoyable now as well. Very food-friendly. B+. Imported by Kermit Lynch, I got this for $18 from B-21 Wines in Florida.
