$1/bottle Shipping on 6 Bottles or More

We jumped on the 2009 Cru Beaujolais bandwagon early on, back in the late summer of 2010. The critics have all jumped on as well, with the last one being Josh Raynolds of the International Wine Cellar who titled his article “Beaujolais 2009: Up to the Hype?”

Here’s what he said about the vintage, “buy all the best 2009s that you can find and afford and plan on drinking them with abandon over the next five or six years…”

Here’s one of those “best 2009’s” he was talking about. The Domaine du Pavillon des Chavannes Cote de Brouilly "Cuvee Ambassades". Josh rated it 92 points and we thought that it’s certainly one of the best of the vintage ever since we tasted it at our Grand Tasting in October.

Here’s what our customers have said about the vintage with their purchases of Beaujolais over the past six months. 691 cases have been bought. A year earlier in the same time frame only 277 cases were purchased. What does it mean? It means you should start buying 2009 Beaujolais or be buying more!

Josh Raynolds International Wine Cellar 92 Points-- Bright red. Assertive aromas of raspberry and cherry, with deeper tobacco, violet and anise qualities and a mounting floral nuance. Juicy, pliant and expansive, offering energetic red and dark berry flavors complicated by musky herbs and spices. Offers a compelling blend of depth and energy, finishing with superb clarity and spicy persistence.
