Probably the first time I've had a beaujolais older than 0-12 months from release, so I was surprised and happy to see that this is still really fresh and lively. The color is not much different from the 09 I had recently, and the profile and attack is just a bit brighter, but honestly that could be the vintage difference as much as age. I think is quite delicious, with really velvety black raspberry notes, and bodes well for the 09 which, I'm guessing, will age longer. I wouldn't give this one more than another 2 years, though.
