2016 Domaine Dupeuble Beaujolais Rose, 750ml

Availability: In stock (9)

A vibrant, dry, racy rose of Gamay from southern Beaujolais. A natural producer, using organic farming and not utilizing sulfur in the ferment so the wine goes through full malolatic yet still has a good balance of acidic that brings a lovely raspberry note to the wine. Overachieves for the price.

From the mouth of the importer (Kermit Lynch):

"Tradition runs deep in the family, but each generation has also managed to add something new, including increasing the property. Today it is comprised of one hundred hectares, about forty percent of which is consecrated to vineyards. Strong advocates of the lutte raisonnée approach to vineyard work, they tend their vines without the use of any chemicals or synthetic fertilizers. The vineyards, planted primarily to Gamay, face Southeast, South, and Southwest, and about two thirds of the property is on granite-based soil. The grapes are harvested manually and vinified completely without SO2. The wines are not chaptalized, filtered, or degassed and only natural yeasts are used for the fermentation. The wines of Dupeuble represent some of the best values in the Beaujolais today and are widely regarded for their very high quality and eminently reasonable price."
