The vineyards of Beaujolais fall on the granite rich slopes of a hilly region between Mâcon and Lyon at the southern limit of Burgundy. The only vine variety authorised for red wines is Gamay, traditionally grown as free standing bush vines. A small amount of Chardonnay is also grown. The most favourable vineyard sites produce `villages` wines, and the 10 named `Cru` villages of Beaujolais represent the best vineyards of the region and produce the longest-lived and fullest style of Beaujolais.
Owned by the very talented winemaker Jean-Paul Dubost and produced from a collection of vineyards inherited from other family members. These richly concentrated `Cru` Beaujolais of Domaine Dubost reflect the distinct vineyard character and potential of Beaujolais. From Brouilly, the `Bruyere vineyard` is planted on a combination of mineral rich granite and schist soils which influence the wines complexity. The Morgon from `la Ballofiere` comes from bush vines grown on granite soils, whilst the Fleurie is on lighter soils. His wines are listed on most of the top gastronomic restaurants in Burgundy.
Displays jammy red cherry aromatics. This intense, concentrated, and broad wine exhibits outstanding depth of fruit as well as a seamless, medium to full-bodied, silky-textured character. Pit fruits, blackberries, red cherries, and flowers can be discerned in its generous and impressively long personality.
