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 the simple pleasures of life such as gathering with friends and family. The domaines and crus within the portfolio are almost entirely comprised of independent, small, family-owned wineries such as Domaine des Rosiers Moulin-A-Vent and Jean Ernest Descombes Morgon, the latter being the first grower Georges worked with.
Keeping Georges’ legacy front and center Franck Duboeuf his son and Adrien Duboeuf-Lacombe his grandson now run the family business striving to offer wines which express their terroir and the Duboeuf flair. Franck’s son, Aurélien recently joined to handle the domains they owned.
