Beaujolais 2014

Dear readers,

Today we will talk about the 2014 Beaujolais vintage, the French famous “new wine” made from Gamay grapes.

This wine is well characterized by simplicity, freshness and red fresh fruit perfumes at the nose and is great to be served in pairing with winter dishes and not only: it is a good companion of roasted chestnuts, soups, vegetable soups, white meat, fresh cheese, mushrooms, vegetables, fish and pizza.

I’ve tried three Beaujolais, to get an idea of what we can expect from this 2014 harvest.


George Dubœuf

Purple in color, this Beaujolais is characterized by a good freshness and a delicate tannin.

It is a balanced wine and quite fine. At the nose, rounded and intense perfumes of ripe banana and ripe strawberries.


Protheau et Fils

Similar perfumes as the Dubœuf Beaujolais, although a bit more pungent.

On the palate, it is perceived more freshness and a slight hint of bitterness which characterizes the final. Good balance too.

The color is more lively and has a remarkable smoothness on the palate, in which is perceived more tannin, although it remains delicate.

At the nose more floral notes, including fresh violets, and the banana perfume is more attenuated, donating more finesse to the wine perfume.

Did you try other Beaujolais or the same? Comment and share your opinion!
