1 x Georges Duboeuf Bourgogne Aligote 2019 - Burgundy, France

The Winemaker “Sparkling pale gold color, with aromas of citrus fruit enhanced with scents of white flowers. The mouth is full, mineral and fruity, with a nice tension that invigorates the finish. To be served chilled.”

This wine is produced by Les Vins Georges Duboeuf which is one of the largest wine producers in France founded by the late Georges Duboeuf who was affectionately known as 'le roi du Beaujolais' (the king of Beaujolais) or sometimes pape du Beaujolais (Pope of Beaujolais). Les Vins Georges Duboeuf produces a staggering 3 million cases of wine annually. The company is most well-known for its popularization and production of Beaujolais wines. In 2018 Georges’ passed control of his company to his son Franck Duboeuf, who is considered to be one of the key specialists in Beaujolais, its terroir and its wine, and has shifted production to focus more on Beaujolais Nouveau.

Aligoté is a white grape used to make dry white wines, especially in the Burgundy region of France where it was first recorded in the 18th century. DNA profiling has proven it to be a member of the wider Pinot family, of which Chardonnay is also a member. The variety is at its best in the wines of the regional Bourgogne Aligoté appellation, and particularly in Bouzeron, in the northern Côte Chalonnaise. Aligote also has a key role in the sparkling Crémant de Bourgogne wines.

Bourgogne Aligoté is the appellation within Burgundy for white wines made from the Aligoté grape variety, created in July 1937. In the past five years, its reputation has grown considerably. Bourgogne Aligoté is now appreciated by wine lovers for its vivacity and thirst-quenching qualities, and is popular among a hip young clientele.

Georges Duboeuf (14 April 1933 – 4 January 2020) was an award winning French wine producer and merchant, and the founder of Les Vins Georges Duboeuf: one of the largest wine producers in France. Duboeuf produces a staggering 3 million cases of wine annually. The company is most well-known for its popularization and production of Beaujolais wines, leading to Duboeuf's nicknames of le roi du Beaujolais or sometimes pape du Beaujolais (the king or pope of Beaujolais). In 2018 Georges’ passed control of his company to his son Franck Duboeuf.

Wine Enthusiast "This wine has structure as well as vibrant black fruits. Its juicy, fruity character contrasts with the open, perfumed flavors."

Decanter "A balanced and complex palate combining a textured palate with lightness of fruit flavour. It has an amazing ability to taste deep and rich but be elegant, light and refreshing on the palate. Very impressive with supple black berry flavours alongside a minerality that comes through as wet stones, chalk and metal. It finishes on a slightly spiced mint note. Again, like La Rochelle, you can really taste terroir - grapes come from a single-vineyard plot located above the windmill at the top of the appellation with eastern exposure sitting in a wind tunnel that affects their maturation and concentration. Soils are sandy granite with an underlayer of clay."

Wine Spectator "Blackberry compote and dark cherry flavors are encased by velvety tannins in this light-bodied red, with floral and spice details lingering into the finish. Drink now through 2024."

Decanter "With 2018, Moulin-à-Vent has experienced four great vintages in a row and while they maybe a little less colour and concentration than in 2017, the quality is extremely high with quantity to match."

The Winemaker “A crimson colour with intense, complex aromas including floral scents (roses, peonies), dark berry aromas and hints of kirsch, sweet spices and pepper. Full, rich and fleshy on the palate, its tannins are mentholated, silky and distinctive, giving the wine a good structure. We recommend to taste this wine at 15-16 °C.”

Domaine du Pourpre is a family-run estate in the commune of Chénas. The Meziat family has been running it for 5 generations. Vines are more than 50 years old.

This wine is produced by Les Vins Georges Duboeuf which is one of the largest wine producers in France founded by the late Georges Duboeuf who was affectionately known as 'le roi du Beaujolais' (the king of Beaujolais) or sometimes pape du Beaujolais (Pope of Beaujolais). Les Vins Georges Duboeuf produces a staggering 3 million cases of wine annually. The company is most well-known for its popularization and production of Beaujolais wines.

Moulin-à-Vent is situated in the north of the Beaujolais region in France. It is one of the most famous crus and named after the local windmill – the literal translation of the name. It is a historic appellation with a vine-growing history dating back hundreds of years. It was officially granted appellation status in 1936 – one of the first in the country.

Decanter "Moulin-à-Vent is considered the ‘king’ of the ten Beaujolais crus for the power, concentration, structure and ageability of its wines."

Beaujolais is an important wine region of eastern France in the southern part of Burgundy, famous for its vibrant, fruity red wines made from Gamay. It is located immediately south of Burgundy, of which it is sometimes considered to be a part, despite being within the Rhone administrative region. The widespread plantings of Gamay here make Beaujolais one of the few regions of the world to be so focused on a single grape variety. In some vintages, Beaujolais produces more wine than the Burgundy wine regions of Chablis, Côte d'Or, Côte Chalonnaise and Mâconnais put together.

Gamay is a grape variety that is most famous for producing the light, fruit-driven red wines of Beaujolais. While the variety offers fresh, red-fruit and candied aromas, it typically delivers little in the way of flavor concentration and body weight, giving light, simple wines.

Mâcon-Villages in southern Burgundy, France is an appellation that in select communes of the Mâconnais wine area produces dry white wines made from the Chardonnay grape variety. These wines represent a step up in quality from the standard Mâcon title.

Burgundy (Bourgogne in French) is a historic and highly respected wine region in eastern France. Burgundy wines have long had devout followers throughout the world and continue to do so today. Although Bordeaux produces about four times as much wine every year, Burgundy’s estimated 74,000 acres (30,000ha) of vineyards are considered to be of equal importance, producing some of the most exclusive wines on Earth.

The two key grape varieties of Burgundy are Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, both members of the extended 'Pinot' family of grape varieties. There are others too, of course, like Aligoté, Pinot Gris, Gamay, and Sauvignon Blanc but the primary focus of Burgundy’s production is Pinot Noir for Bourgogne Rouge and Chardonnay for Bourgogne Blanc. Located in the east-central part of France, Burgundy has 5 primary wine-growing areas; Chablis – “shab-lee” Côte de Nuits – the night slope, Côte de Beaune – the slope of Beaune, Côte Chalonnaise – the Chalon slope, Mâconnais – the region of Mâcon.

Chardonnay is one of the world’s most popular grapes, Chardonnay is made in a wide range of styles from lean, to rich, creamy white wines aged in oak. Bolder, richer, full-bodied and buttery Chardonnays are made using oak and are produced in California, Burgundy, and Australia. Unoaked chardonnays such as Chablis and those produced in Chile, New Zealand, and other parts of France are leaner and often crisp and minerally, with delicate flavors. By law, if a label says “Chablis,” it must be Chardonnay.

The Beaujolais region's rise to prominence began in the 19th Century and was earned by its youthful, fruity nouveau wines. With no barrel aging at all, these are sold and consumed only weeks after harvest and are officially released on the third Thursday in November.

Gamay is a grape variety that is most famous for producing the light, fruit-driven red wines of Beaujolais. While the variety offers fresh, red-fruit and candied aromas, it typically delivers little in the way of flavor concentration and body weight, giving light, simple wines.

1 x Roselegance Beaujolais Rosé 2020 - Beaujolais, France

5 Stars, Winetimes

Winerist Magazine - The Best White and Rosé Beaujolais to Try This Summer "The DuBoeuf family are one of the most well-known and innovative winemaking families in Beaujolais, and their dynamic approach is certainly evident in this exuberant, enticing rosé. It’s tons of fun, a gorgeous shade of salmon pink, fresh, and utterly thirst-quenching. This is the ultimate summer party wine, fruity and zingy with delicious citrus and well-balanced acidity."

Michael Bredahl "The lovely rose color remains brilliant and appealing to wine drinkers. When drank, the taste rolls over to the tongue and lips that are considered suave. The powerful aromas of white fruits like a peach are enhanced with notes of more citrus fruits. It gives inviting, smooth and lip-smacking flavors that are reliable to wine drinkers."

Wine Enthusiast "An innovation for Beaujolais Nouveau, this rosé is made from crisp, fruity Gamay with good acidity and bright flavors of red berries. It's an attractive wine that is refreshing and packed with fruitiness." (2018 vintage)

The Winemaker “Sparkling color in a beautiful rose petal color. Intense and fine aromas of white-fleshed fruit and peach, enhanced with citrus notes. A mouth-watering, melting, gourmet palate with tremendous freshness, a round finish that lasts very pleasantly ... Ideal as an aperitif, an antipasto salad, a pie in the crust. We recommend tasting this wine at 8-10 ° C.”

Beaujolais rosé is made from the Gamay grape, the emblematic Beaujolais grape variety.

Rosé derives its name from the French word for pink. In Spain it is rosado and in Italy rosato. Rosé’s flavours and styles are as varied as the food it matches. Rosé predates white and red wine with ancient rosé-style wines dating back 8,000 years. The colour of a rosé can vary dramatically. A deep fuchsia pink rosé may be bone-dry, though it’s likely to be full flavoured given balance by a gentle squeeze of tannin. Tannin primarily comes from the skin of a grape – as does colour. It’s tannin that sets rosé apart from white and red wine. Almost all wine grapes have clear juice; it’s the skins that give the colour. Grenache is the most popular grape used in rosé, with its lifted confectionary aromas, juicy red fruit flavours and mild-mannered tannins creating the textbook triumvirate for rosé. The temperate Provence region of France is home to some of the world’s most accliamed rosé, perhaps naturally, given it’s widely planted with grenache and its Rhône varietals; mourvèdre, cinsault and syrah.

In 2018 Georges’ passed control of his company to his son Franck Duboeuf, who is considered to be one of the key specialists in Beaujolais, its terroir and its wine, and has shifted production to focus more on Beaujolais Nouveau. No wonder Drinks International calls it "One of the “Ten Most Admired Wine Brands” in the world."

Beaujolais is an important wine region in eastern France, immediately to the south of Burgundy, famous for its vibrant, fruity red wines made from Gamay. The widespread plantings of Gamay here make Beaujolais one of the few regions of the world to be so focused on a single grape variety.

The Beaujolais region's rise to prominence began in the 19th Century and was earned by its youthful, fruity nouveau wines. With no barrel aging at all, these are sold and consumed only weeks after harvest and are officially released on the third Thursday in November.

Gamay is a grape variety that is most famous for producing the light, fruit-driven red wines of Beaujolais. While the variety offers fresh, red-fruit and candied aromas, it typically delivers little in the way of flavor concentration and body weight, giving light, simple wines.

Winerist Magazine - The Best White and Rosé Beaujolais to Try This Summer "The DuBoeuf family are one of the most well-known and innovative winemaking families in Beaujolais, and their dynamic approach is certainly evident in this exuberant, enticing rosé. It’s tons of fun, a gorgeous shade of salmon pink, fresh, and utterly thirst-quenching. This is the ultimate summer party wine, fruity and zingy with delicious citrus and well-balanced acidity."

Michael Bredahl "The lovely rose color remains brilliant and appealing to wine drinkers. When drank, the taste rolls over to the tongue and lips that are considered suave. The powerful aromas of white fruits like a peach are enhanced with notes of more citrus fruits. It gives inviting, smooth and lip-smacking flavors that are reliable to wine drinkers."

Wine Enthusiast "An innovation for Beaujolais Nouveau, this rosé is made from crisp, fruity Gamay with good acidity and bright flavors of red berries. It's an attractive wine that is refreshing and packed with fruitiness." (2018 vintage)

The Winemaker “Sparkling color in a beautiful rose petal color. Intense and fine aromas of white-fleshed fruit and peach, enhanced with citrus notes. A mouth-watering, melting, gourmet palate with tremendous freshness, a round finish that lasts very pleasantly ... Ideal as an aperitif, an antipasto salad, a pie in the crust. We recommend tasting this wine at 8-10 ° C.”

Beaujolais rosé is made from the Gamay grape, the emblematic Beaujolais grape variety.

Rosé derives its name from the French word for pink. In Spain it is rosado and in Italy rosato. Rosé’s flavours and styles are as varied as the food it matches. Rosé predates white and red wine with ancient rosé-style wines dating back 8,000 years. The colour of a rosé can vary dramatically. A deep fuchsia pink rosé may be bone-dry, though it’s likely to be full flavoured given balance by a gentle squeeze of tannin. Tannin primarily comes from the skin of a grape – as does colour. It’s tannin that sets rosé apart from white and red wine. Almost all wine grapes have clear juice; it’s the skins that give the colour. Grenache is the most popular grape used in rosé, with its lifted confectionary aromas, juicy red fruit flavours and mild-mannered tannins creating the textbook triumvirate for rosé. The temperate Provence region of France is home to some of the world’s most accliamed rosé, perhaps naturally, given it’s widely planted with grenache and its Rhône varietals; mourvèdre, cinsault and syrah.
