Dupeuble Beaujolais Blanc (750ml)
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.
Fresh and delicate nose of white flowers and apple. Medium weight and medium acidity with nice texture mid palate, stone fruit and minerality.
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.
The Chardonnay grapes are pressed, and held in stainless steel tank for a brief cold-soak.
