Georges Duboeuf, Beaujolais, and Wine Channel TV in Chicago

Beaujolais Nouveau is always released the third Thursday of November, and Georges Dubeouf is getting a head start promoting the release of this Gamay of a “lifetime.”

I visited L20 Restaurant in Chicago for the Georges Duboeuf 2009 Pre-Release of their Beaujolais Wine. We had a delicious 4 course meal with a Dubeouf wine pairing accompanying each course.

Georges Dubeouf has claimed 2009 to be “an excellent vintage, the best of my life,” as stated on his site; so I was eager to see for myself what this wine was all about! A favorite pairing of mine that night was the tuna sashimi with foie gras snow, which paired wonderfully with the bright, 2009 Beaujolais Village Wine.

This fun wine is only $9.99 and one that I would definitely recommend to everyone with its smooth blackberry, vanilla and cassis notes.

By the end of the night, Beaujolais just kept reminding me of a certain word I remember from attending Polish School in Chicago, “Buzi” which means kiss…now I think I need a t-shirt that says

“Do You Beaujolais ?” 😉

Watch WineChannelTV with the Georges Duboeuf Team to see the hype around this wine!

Cheers,

JustJess
