Winemaker Notes

Brouilly, southernmost of the ten Cru Beaujolais, unfailingly displays the highest degree of exuberance in fruit --- an intriguing parallel between geography and character! It is also the largest Cru in terms of volume, as well as the most extensive in surface area. Its vines form a large wreath around the base of the impressive Mount Brouilly, stretching out over the six villages of Odenas, Quincié, Cercié, Saint-Lager, Charentay and Saint-Etienne-la-Varenne. Its name is thought to hail back to a particular Brulius, lieutenant in the Imperial Roman Legion. It is tempting to picture this officer placed under the command of Caesar as having the same solid, jovial personality as the most flavorful of the Cru Beaujolais. The wines of Brouilly, known and esteemed around the globe, are true ambassadors of quality French red wines, regardless of the vineyard area.

Deep, radiant ruby color, so typical of classic Brouilly. Intensely perfumed, offering a whirl of richly concentrated, jam-like fruits, such as damson plum, strawberry, peach and red currant. The texture is opulent and velvety. Brouilly is at its best while in the fullness of youth.

Food pairings: Roasted fowl, filet of duck, red meats, fine cheese

Georges Duboeuf, France
Georges Duboeuf Franck and Georges Duboeuf Winery Image

For over 40 years Georges Duboeuf has been the Beaujolais region's most renowned négociant and is today regarded in the wine world as the "King of Beaujolais." Born in 1933 in Pouilly-Fuissé, the son of a winegrower, Georges began selling his family's wines from the back of his bicycle to now-legendary local chefs such as Paul Bocuse and Paul Blanc. In 1964, Georges realized his dream and founded his own company: Les Vins Georges Duboeuf.

Over the years, Georges has developed long-standing relationships with the region's top growers and winemakers. Georges is involved in every aspect of his enterprise and is known for his passion and his legendary palate. In 2003, the Duboeuf family opened a new, modern winery in Romanéche-Thorins. The following year, the Duboeuf and Deutsch families jointly purchased Chateau des Capitans in Juliénas. With annual sales of 30 million bottles, Georges Duboeuf is one of the world's best-known French brands.

Red Wine

Celebrated as some of the best wine in the universe, red wine from Burgundy, otherwise known as red Burgundy, is Pinot noir. In fact Burgundy is the birthplace of Pinot noir and the source of the planet’s most sensual, delicate, valuable and sought-after Pinot noir wines.

Understanding and enjoying red Burgundy can stay simple, with a basic knowledge of its subregions, become more intricate by dialing down to the villages and vineyards or become a life-long passion, exploring climats (plots of vines), vintages and the post French Revolution land ownership laws. In any case, a fine red Burgundy will display refined nuances of black currant, red fruit, earth, spice, alluring floral aromatics and have great elegance, complexity and longevity.

Most famous, praised and collected of Burgunday are those from the Côte d'Or. Hundreds of millions of years ago, the area now called Côte d'Or was under a warm ocean whose sea floor has, over time, shifted and decomposed into various layers of limestone, sandstone and clay interspersed with ancient fossilized sea creatures. This is what is referred to as the famous escarpment upon which all of the highly sought-after Grands Crus and Premiers Crus vineyards can be found. In other words, from north to south, the best vineyards of Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey-St-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Vougeot, Vosne-Romanée, Flagey-Echezeaux, Nuits-St-Georges, Aloxe-Corton, Pommard and Volnay follow the path of this ancient sea bed.
