“Julienas” Beaujolais Cru 2003 wine review by (PB)

This Cru—remember this is the best of Beaujolais, this one produced by Dubouef, had a bright bouquet of cherries with a nose of dried cherries, licorice and subtle brief cocoa notes. In the mouth it starts with a blast of licorice and dried fruit. This is another decent old world wine but I didn’t like it nearly as much as the Brouilly—another Beaujolais Cru-- previously blogged. The finish was short.

Having this wine right after the mediocre and awkward and “Beauzeaux” (previously entered) made this wine taste even better. We paired it with turkey/sage ravioli and it was okay but not great.

I paid $9 for this which is a good price for a Beaujolais Cru wine. They tend to run closer to the mid teens. If you need a brush up on Beaujolais, do see the entry regarding Beaujolais wine explained and while you’re doing that—raise a glass!
