The Dupeuble Beaujolais is undoubtedly always my favorite of the Noveau's that come to KL every November. Although less playful and more inherently Burgundian in style than the other Noveau's on the rack, the Dupeuble shows a refreshing, elegant and spicy expression of the fruit that is simply delicious and gratifying. This is a great pick to bring to Friendsgiving and sure to be a total crowd pleaser!

Our most serious Beaujolais Nouveau; this was the most balanced in my opinion. Elevated acidity, bigger tannins than other Nouveau’s typically. Plum, black cherry, and wild berry aromas. Strawberry and pomegranate flavors on the palate, with a granite mineral finish. Most Burgundian in style and expression

Definitely the most serious and thoughtful of the beaujolais nouveau this year the Dupeuble brings a more tart raspberry note and drier finish to the collection. Although this is still a classic beaujolais nouveau meaning the snappy red fruit of the nose and juicy mid palate is still here, a slightly burgundian presence is also present.

This is cool and restrained for a Nouveau with a middle of dusty plum, a graphite-like core and a finish of sweet raspberries and dried flowers. Our most "sophisticated" Nouveau.

Additional Information:



- Ah, poor, oft-maligned Gamay. Once widely planted in Burgundy, today the grape is largely confined to Beaujolais. The varietal, officially called Gamay Noir à Jus Blanc is vigorous, early-ripening and can grow in cooler climates. The grapes naturally high acidity, low tannins and low potential alcohol lends itself to exuberant, fruity wines, ranging from the early-release Beaujolais Nouveau, to the more serious Cru Beaujolais from villages like Brouilly, Moulin-à-Vent and St-Amour that are steadily gaining in popularity (and can age remarkably well). Outside of Beaujolais, Gamay is also grown in small amounts around the Loire where it is called Anjou Gamay and Gamay de Touraine. It is also grown in Burgundy's Côte Chalonnaise where it is blended with Pinot Noir, as it is in Switzerland.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.


- Region in east central France, often considered a part of Burgundy, but really quite distinct. The principal grape grown here is Gamay Noir. Familiar to many as the source of the Beaujolais Nouveau, the first wine of the vintage, Beaujolais is often fresh, fruity and very appealing red wine. Besides the straight Beaujolais, there is also Beaujolais Villages, and what is known as Cru Beaujolais. The 10 individual Crus, such as Moulin à Vent, Brouilly, Fleurie, Julienas, St. Amour and Chénas, each have their own character, and much more depth than someone who has only tried a simple Beaujolais could ever guess. These often represent value-priced, lovely, food-friendly wines.
