Jean Bererd et Fils 2007 Domaine de la Madone Beaujolais le Perreon

Fairly dark red color, purple at the edge.

Mild banana/strawberry smell, a bit of raspberry.

Tart raspberry flavor, banana. No apparent oak. Good acid.

This wine is eligible to be labeled Beaujolais-Villages but is not so labeled. I wonder if someone is lobbying for cru status for le Perreon. If so, I'm not convinced it deserves it.

Pleasant enough, a food-friendly fun Beaujolais, but no bargain for $19.77. A day of the bottle open didn't improve the second half of the bottle.
