The Beaujolais Nouveau Rosé from Georges Duboeuf 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. A difference in altitude and latitude can influence the style of wine. Some of the grapes were picked manually, in whole clusters, while others were machine harvested. The average age of the vines are 20 years old. Traditional semi-carbonic maceration took place over eight days, followed by malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks, at temperatures between 66-68°F degrees.
About the Estate and Vineyards
The 2018 Vintage marks the first time that Georges Duboeuf has released a Beaujolais Nouveau Rosé in the U.S and will be the very first rose of the season! Beaujolais Nouveau is a French tradition that celebrates the first wine of a new vintage. This fresh and fruity wine is bottled only a few weeks after harvest and is meant to be enjoyed immediately upon release.
Best served slightly chilled, this wine pairs well with appetizers, cheese, charcuterie, poultry such as turkey and salmon.
