ryansnyder reviewed Terres Dorees L'Ancien Beaujolais Nouveau Vielles Vignes 2005 on December 7, 2005
How often do you find a Beaujolais Nouveau made from old vines? The aroma is more reminiscent of Syrah than Gamay, with notes of spicy pepper and a hint of roasted game. This excitement leads to the palate, where black cherry and blueberry show up front and vanilla, pepper and slate show near the dry finish.
