THE FIRST WINE OF THE HARVEST
Beaujolais-Villages takes its name from 38 wine-producing villages long identified for the superior quality of their wines. Beaujolais-Villages Nouveau is that ideal, multipurpose red wine we all look for.
Beaujolais Nouveau is meant to be drunk young. Most vintages should be consumed by the following May after its release. However, in excellent vintages (such as 2000) the wine can live much longer and can be enjoyed until the next harvest rolls around. The region of Beaujolais is known for its fabulous food. The famed Paul Bocuse restaurant is just minutes from the heart of Beaujolais, as is Georges Blanc’s. These great restaurants have plenty of Beaujolais Nouveau on their wine lists. The wine goes well with either haute cuisine or Friday night’s pizza.
For more than four centuries, the Duboeuf family has been producing wine. Georges, well known for his dynamism, created Les Vins Georges Duboeuf in September of 1964. This historical date also marks the start of his wine merchant business, selecting, bottling and selling fine French wines from the Beaujolais and Maconnais regions of Burgundy and, in the process, becoming world-famous. Georges has become, in a sense, the ambassador of the region. He has remained loyal to his quest of offering quality wines, combining the flavor profiles of their terroir with bold characters. He conducts his business by negotiating with heart, passion, and the constant desire to share the very best of Beaujolais. In continuing the family tradition, Georges and his wife Rolande are joined by their son Franck and his wife Anne who manage the family business.
