WINE OF THE WEEK

October 17, 2001|By Michael Dresser

2000 Georges Duboeuf `Domaine des Quatre Vents' Fleurie ($13).

The 2000 vintage in Beaujolais has been quite variable, but the best have been extremely impressive. That is the case with this excellent Fleurie. This wine displays intense raspberry fruit and excellent balance. The finish is long and the flavors are ripe. There's both freshness and powerful flavor. This wine could be served with a wide variety of mildly seasoned pasta dishes, as well as roast chicken and grilled red meats. The village of Fleurie produces very sexy, decadent wines and this is a prime example.
