Joseph Drouhin Beaujolais Villages: Wine Man Pick

November 2, 2011
Joseph Drouhin Beaujolais Villages

On the palate, silky smoothness and delicious fruit lingers. I had a welcome return to Gamay with this wine in 2010, not having touched Beaujolais for 15 years. A revelation after a rash of heavy, intense and over-extracted wines; lighter, smokier and spicier than I recalled…
