2006 George Duboeuf, Flower Label, Regnie ($10.99 NH Liq Store). Alcohol level: 13%.

It gives you a ton of flowerey red fruit on the nose and upfront including red cherries, strawberries, and cranberries. There is more of same in the surprisingly complex and slightly earthy middle. The finish hangs on for a moment or two.

We matched it with broiled (still rainy here) Swiss Steak, blanched and sauteed broccoli rabe-rappini, and crusty bread rubbed with garlic. Very nice Tuesday night!

We would buy more in a heartbeat.

The latest Spectator says Burgundians are buying up Beaujolais property because it's considered undervalued. Guess it's the only way they've found to increase the size of their burg holdings.
