Domaine Dupeuble Père et Fils Beaujolais Nouveau 2016

klbn

Estate: Domaine Dupeuble is located in the southern part of the Beaujolais region of eastern France. The estate has been making wine nearly continuously since 1512, and throughout that lengthy history, the name has only changed three times. The most recent name change was in 1919 when estate heiress Anna Asmaquer married Jules Dupeuble. Today their grandson Damien, along with his wife, brothers and their children, run the estate. Over the years the family has incrementally been able to increase their property holdings, currently the estate consists of 100 hectares, 40% of which are vineyards. Their wines are renowned for their combination of high quality and reasonable price.

Winemaking: The family are committed to lutte raisonnée cultivation methods and therefore do not use any chemicals or synthetic products in the vineyards or during production. Grapes are harvested by hand and vinified without the use of sulphur, “wines are not chaptalized, filtered, or degassed and only natural yeasts are used for the fermentation”. Grapes for the Beaujolais Nouveau were sourced from vines 50-100 years old in a mixture of granite, clay and limestone soil.

Tasting Notes: Red-violet in colour with aromas of candied flowers, raspberry, cherry and blueberry. Super jammy berries [raspberry, blueberry, blackberry, black currant, cherry, all the berries really] with an occasional trace of rose petal swell the full body. Silky smooth, with mineral traces on the dry, clean fruit finish. Fantastically fresh, with an elegant edge, wonderful on its own or with a wide variety of dishes.
