I’ve been tasting a lot of 2009 Beaujolais recently, everything from Crus like Régnié, Brouilly and Morgon to plain Beaujolais. Some are just bottled or just before bottling. Everytime I stick my nose in a glass of the stuff, I cant get over it : they are all delicious ! So delicious, I want to suck down the glass and have another!
One great vinifyier in the Cote de Nuits hit the nail on the head when he said that in 2009 vintage, relative to the potential of the terroir and the vintage, Beaujolais made the best wines.
The prodcuers fo Beaujolais are saying this the best vintage since 1949….(which I never tasted)
Did you know that Beaujolais ages ? Especially from such a ripe, concentrated vintage like 2009. I’ve tasted 25 year old Beaujolais that was still kicking, and tasting very Burgundian.

Took your recommendation about the 2009 Beaujolais. It is excellent! I tried the “La Madone”, which I found at North Berkeley Imports (San Francisco Bay Area). It was so good that I went back and bought a case. I hope it lasts! Cheers!
Fantastic! I’ve been having a lot of Beaujolais 2009 recently too! I did the harvest at La Madone in 2009 and made a video clip about the harvest there….check it out if you have time at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5XiAlRigE9E
