Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Villages 2016
The vineyards of the Estate are over 50 years old, face Southeast and extend over 8 hectares (19.8 acres), planted in the traditional Goblet Trellis style. The grapes were hand-harvested, gently destemmed and loaded into stainless steel tanks, where maceration took place at controlled temperatures. Pumping over was conducted during maceration, followed by a gentle pressing. The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation, with no time on the lees.
Food Pairings: This wine pairs best with charcuterie, prosciutto, soft cheeses and goat cheese.
Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Beaujolais Villages is quite lucid and deep in color. There is darker fruit here on the nose: blackcurrant pastilles and boysenberry scents with just a touch of vanilla. The palate is well balanced with rounded, supple tannin. More black than red fruit here with just a touch of blueberry on the short finish. Fine.
Please Note: The Vineyard is not responsible for wine that arrives damaged due to heat or cold.
