Georges DuBoeuf Beaujolais-Villages 2004
This Beaujolais-Villages is a decent wine for the price and displays the more complex side of the Gamay grape. Knowing about the Cru wines from Beaujolais and how they are even greater than the village wines makes me excited to taste them. This wine had a great nose that had hints of cola and cherry and was quite quaffable. Definetly the poor mans Burgundy but better than I had pictured. The 2005 is probably even better and less flat and more vibrant. I can't score it because i have little experience with Gamay wines but I thought it was very interesting indeed.
