SOLD OUT! The Domaine Dupeuble Beaujolais Blanc is one of the finest white wines made in the entire region. Composed entirely of Chardonnay from vineyards located in the southern part of Beaujolais where the soils contain more limestone, this is “no oak,” White Burgundy done right.
Domaine Dupeuble has been in the same family hands since 1512! Let’s just say they know a thing or two about their land, the grapes, and healthy farming and winemaking. And it shows in this beautifully fragrant and pure white wine that would give many Pouilly Fuissés a run for their money. This is another micro-production wine brought in by importer Kermit Lynch, and it’s full of heart and soul.
2019 Domaine Dupeuble Beaujolais Blanc
“Laced with lovely notes of white peach, golden apple, ripe citrus, and white flowers.” – JS
If it’s from Beaujolais and it’s imported by Kermit Lynch, it’s guaranteed to be great. And this is year in and year out a customer and staff favorite. Back in the “old days,” I could get my hands on 10 to 15 cases per year, but Domaine Dupeuble’s brilliant Beaujolais Blanc has gained many new admirers in the past 10 years. And for good reason! It’s serious wine and it’s seriously delicious. And with White Burgundy prices continuing to climb due to low supply/high demand and tariffs, this is a stellar value.
This is the perfect wine for those who like un-oaked Chardonnays, but don’t be fooled into thinking this is a light white wine. It’s actually quite full and rich even though it remains fresh and bright. This is accomplished by a gentle pressing in stainless steel followed by a brief cold soak where the grape skins and juice spend some time together.
The resulting wine is deep straw/golden in color, and the nose is pure, unbridled, and uninhibited Chardonnay. Gorgeous notes of honey crisp apple, white peach, pear, spice, and honeysuckle show up both on the nose and the palate. And just so you know it’s Burgundy, this one finishes with a nice little burst of minerality.
A white wine perfect for all seasons, this one is also very versatile with a wide variety of dishes. Try it with anything from poultry and pork to salmon and scallops. It will make your dish shine and your guests happy!
