WTN: Gentle, Eager Beaujolais

Postby Dave Moritz » Thu Aug 17, 2006 1:21 am

WTN: 2005 Domaine de la Terriere Beaujolais; Jean Coquard; $9; alc. 12%

If this is any indication, the 2005s are going to be good. Poured a cool glass out on the deck and picked up the aroma from a few feet away. Bouquet consisted of light cherry and earth. Very nice, and surprisingly full on the palate. Good structure and balance with no off flavors. Several seconds of length on the finish. A year or so in the cellar might add even more interest. I'll certainly buy this again.
