2016 Beaujolais

Domaine Dupeuble

2016 Beaujolais Domaine Dupeuble - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

I ’m one of those people (we the many) who find it difficult to drink red wine in the summertime. I must get this from my mother, who finds it difficult to drink red wine, period. That being said, certain reds do grace my summer table, and this one’s top-of-the-list. With gentle tannins and seductive aromas of just-picked berries and spice, this Beaujolais from Ghislaine and Stéphane Dupeuble is dangerously easy to drink. Poured alongside grilled short ribs and fresh garden veggies, my mom was delighted by the fruity and irresistible “lightness” of this Gamay. This is her (and my) go-to summer red, and should be yours too. Here’s why:
     1.) It takes well to a slight chill, and so do I on hot summer nights. Having recently returned from a trip to Greece, where my companions and I drank white wine every day (with almost every meal), I’d been dreaming of some Beaujolais. Not a drop of Greek red was consumed on the trip — the Mediterranean sun was so draining, we just didn’t crave it. We wanted to be quenched! I had forgotten that red wine can be refreshing, too, especially if it’s chilled Gamay. Throw this one in the refrigerator for twenty minutes pre-jovial cork popping.
    2.) It’s simply subliminal paired with grilled summer fare. Keep it simple. Go on, throw some sausages on a stick. I pulled a bottle from my dwindling stock and enjoyed this wine fireside with some fresh-off-the-grill burgers and a strawberry spinach salad al fresco last weekend. The combination made for divine backyard dining.
    3.) It’s $14.95, and that’s nothing to turn your nose up at! This wine’s the real deal. The grapes are hand harvested, vinified completely without sulfur, undergo no chaptalization, filtration, or degassing, and fermented with only natural yeasts. Dupeuble’s wines are some of the best values in the Beaujolais today, and have been for the past thirty years we’ve been importing them!  It’s a steal for a tried-and-true staple of our portfolio, especially with this six pack deal. Get it while it’s hot.

About Beaujolais

After years of the region’s reputation being co-opted by mass-produced Beaujolais Nouveau and the prevalence of industrial farming, the fortunes of vignerons from the Beaujolais have been on the rise in the past couple of decades. Much of this change is due to Jules Chauvet, a prominent Beaujolais producer who Kermit worked with in the 1980s and arguably the father of the natural wine movement, who advocated not using herbicides or pesticides in vineyards, not chaptalizing, fermenting with ambient yeasts, and vinifying without SO2. Chief among Chauvet’s followers was Marcel Lapierre and his three friends, Jean Foillard, Guy Breton, and Jean-Paul Thévenet—a group of Morgon producers who Kermit dubbed “the Gang of Four.” The espousal of Chauvet’s methods led to a dramatic change in quality of wines from Beaujolais and with that an increased interest and appreciation for the AOC crus, Villages, and regular Beaujolais bottlings.

The crus of Beaujolais are interpreted through the Gamay grape and each illuminate the variety of great terroirs available in the region. Distinguishing itself from the clay and limestone of Burgundy, Beaujolais soils are predominantly decomposed granite, with pockets of blue volcanic rock. The primary vinification method is carbonic maceration, where grapes are not crushed, but instead whole clusters are placed in a tank, thus allowing fermentation to take place inside each grape berry.

Much like the easy-going and friendly nature of many Beaujolais vignerons, the wines too have a lively and easy-drinking spirit. They are versatile at table but make particularly good matches with the local pork sausages and charcuterie. Though often considered a wine that must be drunk young, many of the top crus offer great aging potential.

A good doctor prescribed the wine of Nuits-Saint-Georges to the Sun King, Louis XIV, when he suffered an unknown maladie. When the king’s health was restored the tasty remedy enjoyed a vogue at court. Lord, send me a doctor like that!
