Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Villages 2005, Beaujolais, France
This vivacious, juicy gamay is loaded with grapey blackberry fruit, plus licks of licorice and tobacco. It’s newly available in magnum size, ideal for large backyard gatherings. Good flavour depth and weight, but with no lack of charm. Fine acidity and soft tannin. Serve with pork tenderloin or burgers.
