Winemaker's Notes

The wine, distinguished and supple, with the fragrance of violets has all the features of a Fleurie. Pairs well with grilled andouillette (a great regional classic), chicken, and roast leg of lamb.

The vineyards of the estate tumble down the hillside to the road leading out of Fleurie. The large house is well-hidden among a wood of pine and cedar trees.

Two winegrowers (Mr. Marion and Mr. Goutelle) undertake caring for the 42-acre property. The vineyard which surrounds the house extends over 24.7 acres. It is a fine piece of land. The average harvest is 425 barrels.

Critical Acclaim

"Opulent and generous, this is one of Duboeuf's most charming wines. This is not to say it doesn't have structure balanced with the layers of red fruits, but it is the richness allied to a velvet texture that makes it so attractive. Give the acidity six months to calm down, and the wine will be ready."

But the region of Beaujolais, situated at the bottom of the Burgundy AC, is more than just the nouveau. Some Beaujolais wines can be kept (gasp!) for up to 10 years! Those are usually the Cru Beaujolais and are...

Learn About Gamay

Gamay (gah-MAY) Beaujolais' Baby Gamay is a pale colored grape, best associated with the region of Beaujolas. In fact, few regions or grapes are so wholly intertwined with one another. After being universally rejected by the rest of Burgundy in the 14th century, Gamay found its niche a bit further south, in Beaujolais. Beyond that part of France, Gamay can also be...
