A poor example of Beaujolais Villages
I have been an amateur de Beaujolais for many years and have visited the region annually since 1992. This is not a good example of Beaujolais Villages, lacking fruit and charm. There are many better examples, including Jadot Combes des Jacques (Tesco), Duboeuf, and (from the vineyard) Dominique Jambon (Lantignie). There are many others. To describe this wine as approaching cru quality is a gross over-hype of a pedestrian wine. I can only assume that some of the poor 2008 vintage had been kept and was mixed in with what was otherwise a very fine year. A great turn-off.
