Bouchard Aîné & Fils Beaujolais-Villages 2009

 

After enjoying the crisp, dry, fruitiness of Kir-Yianni Paranga with dinner, my sister and I wanted to continue on with our pre-cinema beverages with a light glass containing a bit of acidity and vibrant fruit flavours. We decided upon Bouchard Aîné & Fils Beaujolais-Villages 2009. Bouchard Aîné & Fils was founded in 1750 in the heart of Burgundy and is renowned for their Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Over the past 2 centuries, they have developed expertise in the profession of négociant/winemaker/cellarer, allowing them to pursue a mission of producing wines excelling in quality, style and name. This Beaujolais is designated as a Village, which signifies that the grapes have been sourced from amongst the communes within the Beaujolais appellation.

 

Dark garnet in colour, aromas of strawberry and dried rose petal and leaf swirled about in the glass. Tart cherry and sweet raspberry flavours abounded in the light to medium body. Spicy green peppercorn and traces of dried cherry comprised the moderate finish. Smooth and easy drinking, this is a friendly glass for the table or on its own.
