This Beaujolais rock-star was one of our most requested wines last year. A tranche of the same amazing vintage (2018) just landed. It is an outrageously good vintage and value.
Countless customers returned for cases of this unsung hero from Burgundy.
Don't want a heavy Cabernet? Want something with a bit more body than a Pinot Noir? Here you go!
Wow! This glorious Gamay boasts blackberry, cassis, baking spice, and crushed rock converge on a lush, long finish. A beautiful balance between fruit and acidity, the 2018 Dupeuble Beaujolais reminds us of a $30 Cru Beaujolais with its depth and structure. It has lift, vibrancy, and loads of spice and minerality.
The best way to purchase this beauty is by the case(s). It is not to be confused with a Beaujolais Nouveau (a simple wine released right before Thanksgiving.) Nor is it a Cru Beaujolais (a bit pricer and age-worthy, there are ten crus from the Beaujolais region).
While cheese is a must, you should also pair this Gamay with grilled meats, duck, chicken, and hearty salads.
And though rare these days, if you are having company, this is an ideal crowd pleaser.
