A simple, modern-style Beaujolais in the Georges Deboeuf style. I'm not a fan of this style, but if you like Deboeuf wines you will certainly like this better than I did.
Vibrant, purple-tinged dark ruby. Straightforward black cherry and berry fruit on the nose. Lacks that piercing cracked-stone minerality of the old-school Beaujolais I like. Direct, mouthfilling ripe fruit coats the mouth, but at least it's completely dry, so cloyingness is minimized. Good acidity, and a short, direct finish, with a surprising amount of tannin. C+/B-. Imported by Robert Kacher, this wine was $18 at Spec's on Weslayan/Bissonnett.
