Domaine Dupeuble Rose 1500ml (1500ml)
In the hamlet of Le Breuil, deep in the southern Beaujolais and perched above a narrow creek, the Domaine Dupeuble has been running almost continuously since 1512. The vineyards are cared for without the use of any chemicals or synthetic fertilizers. Most of the vines are Gamay, planted facing 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.
This Gamay rose gets its pretty pink hue from direct pressing. The wine is vinified in stainless steel and undergoes full malolactic fermentation. This is a red berry fruit driven rose with medium weight and a rich texture from one of our favourite Beaujolais producers.
We all know the folks at Bishop’s Cellar are huge fans of Beaujolais, and we’re also big fans of rose. So, you can probably guess how we feel about Beaujolais Rose! From one of our favourite producers, Domaine Dupeuble has been making wine on their property since 1512, only using natural yeasts and minimal intervention to produce some of the best value, and freshest expressions of Gamay we have. Loads of ripe red fruits and subtle herbaceous spice give this wine great depth for a rose, and the vibrant acidity that will help it pair with an assortment of light summer fare. Although we have the regular (boring) 750ml bottles, I would strongly suggest opting for the 1500ml magnum bottles – because you’re worth it.
