Natalie's Score: 87/100

A little stemmy and herbal, but tasty nonetheless. Sour cherry and loads of acidity on the palate. Pair with roast chicken. OTHER: From vines planted in the Tour Bourdon plot in 1940, this concentrated wine is ripe and rich while still shot through with red-currant acidity. Its tannins come from the low-yielding vines, giving a firm edge. The aftertaste is all about fresher red fruits. Jean-Michel Dupré is a member of Terroirs Originels-17 producers on the hills of Beaujolais and Burgundy's Mâcon. Score - 90 (Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, Dec. 2015).

Food pairings: veal chops in red wine sauce, grilled steak, vegetarian pizza.

Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Made from 100% Gamay Noir grapes. Garnet red, offering raspberry and blackberry aromas, repeated on the juicy palate with vanilla and touch of oak/mocha. Very enjoyable dry red with food-friendly acidity. Great value.
Tasted Feb. 2017
Neil Phillips rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Classic red fruits; ripe strawberry, raspberry, juicy plum, slight savoury note. Firm tannins for a BV, which held this together nicely.

Not meant perhaps to age this long, surprisingly vibrant.

Tasted June 2020.
Vignes De 1940 Beaujolais-Villages vineyard is perched above the village of Beaujeu, in the heart of Beaujolais. As the name of the wine suggests the age of the vines are over 75 years of age.
