Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau 2021
|Region||France, Beaujolais, Beaujolais Nouveau|
The Beaujolais Nouveau 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. This 2021 Beaujolais Nouveau displays a light garnet color with violet reflections. It is an immediate delight on the nose, with aromas of small red fruits, red currant and cranberry. It is refreshing, fruity and supple on the palate, this vintage is a perfect expression of Beaujolais Nouveau. Best served slightly chilled, this wine pairs well with appetizers, cheese, charcuterie, poultry such as turkey and salmon.
