Daniel Bouland Cote de Brouilly Cuvee Melanie Beaujolais 2006

I have a feeling that I bang on a bit about Beaujolais and its drinkability and it being an excellent accompaniment to a Mediterranean lunch. This post continues the tradition.

A dry and savoury nose, showing raspberries, iron filings, leather and dry stones. The palate is medium bodied and dry, and though it is perhaps a little bit rustic, it also oozes with savoury fruits, earthy spices and a raspberry tanginess. Very good length, moderately alcoholic and leaves an overall impression of a dry spiciness that complements food. No tsunami of flavours here, but that is not the point. Good stuff indeed.

    I would like to think that I played a little part in boosting your appreciation of Beaujolais. It is worth seeking out fine examples although generally speaking they are better in the short term than long term. The fresh fruit at 1 to 3 years is generally better than the raisiny flavours that develop as they age. However, if you have a Chateau Bluizard…..
    Good luck and keep up the good work Linc
