Domaine des 3 Vallons Beaujolais-Villages Nouveau 2023


A brilliant deep garnet color with violet reflections. A delicacy reminiscent of a basket of fresh black fruits: blackberry, blackcurrant, black cherry. The palate reveals a fantastic balance between strength and finesse: a fleshy, ample, generous wine with silky tannins. The splendid finish is velvety in texture.

Wine Facts

VITICULTURE: This vintage was hand-harvested, in whole clusters, from 55 acres of Southeast-facing, Goblet-trained vines.

VINIFICATION: After destemming and traditional semi-carbonic maceration lasting from six-to-eight days, malolactic fermentation was conducted at temperatures between 78.8 – 82.4° F (26 to 28° C) in stainless steel tanks. The wine was bottled and rested a few weeks before release. The Nouveau is certified sustainable through the French HVE (High Environmental Value).

FAMILY: For more than four centuries, the Duboeuf family has been producing wine. Now, Georges Duboeuf is a name that needs no introduction, as he is famous for turning Beaujolais Nouveau into an international phenomenon. He cared a great deal about Beaujolais, and his dedication still resonates today–elevating both the Beaujolais region and Gamay grape to near-cult status. Georges created Les Vins Georges Duboeuf in September of 1964. This historical date also marked the start of his wine merchant business–selecting, bottling and selling fine French wines from the Beaujolais and Mâconnais regions of Burgundy. Beaujolais Nouveau and the “Flower Label” Villages wines, wines whose labels were hand- drawn by Georges himself, are part of Les Vins Georges Duboeuf. These wines represent enjoying life’s simple pleasures such as gathering with friends and family.

Georges’ son Franck now runs the business, keeping Georges’ legacy front and center, with wines that express the terroir with bold character and deep flavor. Franck’s son, Aurélien, has a winemaking role and his nephew, Adrien, is on the business side. Franck’s wife, Anne, is managing the unique “wine-centric” museum, botanical gardens and family-friendly amusement park, Le Hameau Duboeuf.
