Georges Duboeuf Chateau de Saint-Amour 2015 Review

The Chateau de Saint Amour is a historic winery which is under the fold of Les Vins Georges Duboeuf, the largest producer of Beaujolais wines. This is a dark, rich, and heady Saint-Amour Cru Beaujolais, with deep aromas of blackberries, dark cherries, and a blooming rose garden. The texture is dry and on the heavier side for Cru Beaujolais, with flavors of tart cherry and noticeable oak. This is a Beaujolais that wishes it were a Burgundy. It’s serious but trying a little too hard, and is more heavy-handed than nuanced. Still, at $20, this is a good value for anyone looking for a dry, savory, medium-bodied French wine. Go old-school French and pair it with coq au vin or beef bourguignon.
