2009 Cedric Vincent BEAUJOLAIS "Pouilly Le Monial" "Vieilles Vignes" (Burgundy, France)

A very unusual but very good Beaujolais.

Surprisingly dark color, black/violet ruby.  Pure nose of cold-pressed grapes and cherry candy.  Tight and slightly tannic in the mouth.  Crisp, light, penetrating, bone dry fruit up front (grapey/cherry), molting into a clean, stony, but short finish.  All the flavor is up-front in this wine.  Very refreshing, and a nice picnic/cookout wine for the next few months.  B+.  Imported by Kermit Lynch, I got this for $17 from B-21 Wines in Florida.
