Wine of the week

February 16, 1997|By Michael Dresser

Note: Because of a production error, the 1996 Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Villages Nouveau featured here last week was pictured with the wrong label.

1996 Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Villages Nouveau ($9). I don't make a practice of recommending Beaujolais Nouveau (I see most of them as pale versions of nonnouveaus), but this Duboeuf offering warrants notice. It is especially lively and vibrant. The intensity of the black cherry and raspberry flavors is an auspicious omen for the 1996 crop of "real" -- that is, nonnouveau -- Beaujolais.
