Georges Duboeuf’s Beaujolais Nouveau is sourced from the southern part of the Beaujolais region, which is a patchwork of terroir ranging from sand, clay and limestone to granite and schist. Differences in altitude and latitude influence the style of wine produced. Some of the grapes were picked by hand, in whole clusters, while others were machine harvested. They come from vines over 20 years old that were trained in the Guyot Trellis System. Traditional semi-carbonic maceration took place over eight days, followed by malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks, at temperatures between 66-and-68F.
Best served slightly chilled, this wine pairs well with appetizers, cheese, charcuterie, poultry such as turkey and salmon.
