1997 Georges Duboeuf Julienas ($12).

This was my favorite of three 1997 Flower Label Beaujolais wines produced by Georges Duboeuf. That's a little surprising because Julienas is usually not as highly regarded as Morgon and Fleurie -- two of the other top-10 subregions within Beaujolais. The Julienas seems a little raw now, but it offers excellent balance, TTC acidity and liveliness along with generous black raspberry fruit. It's a perfect summertime sipping red.
