Tasting Notes

In the heart of Beaujolais, perched above the village of Beaujeu, Jean-Michel Dupré began his wine making from almost nothing. He was left a farm and vineyard of only 2 hectares from his father, converting the old farm buildings into a winery. Many of his vines are centuries old, giving the wines he creates character, complexity, and a singular sense of terrior. Winery note: "A top Gamay, ripe, pleasant, and explosive on the palate!"

    Jean Michel Dupre likens his venerable vines to wizened elders, imbued with the rooted wisdom of the ancient granite soils upon which they still manage to survive. One might inject a philosophical note, and call this quality the 'Ding an sich' of the vines, like the two surviving Beatles (Kant buy me love!). Oh well…. Dupre sources most of his fruit from sites over 70 years old, and the wines are a graceful embodiment of that timespan, with concentrated black fruit flavors that descend upon the palate in waves of potpourri spice and pleasantly ripened berries. Serve slightly chilled with a plate of charcuterie.

    Very floral and very Beaujolais! It's easy drinking but still possess layered complexity, perhaps due to the old age of the vines. Perfect for summer.

    This is made from vines planted in 1940. It is light, dry and refreshing with a clean crisp finish. Nice red fruits balance this wine out and help make it such a joy to drink. Best served with a slight chill.
