A light fresh red in jubilant everyday styling, Georges Duboeuf is Roi de Beaujolais, King of Beaujolais. Fashioned from the fruity Gamay varietal which is peculiar to the region, the grape has a thinner skin, characterized by lower levels of tannin for a wine that goes well with everything. By virtue of the traditional carbonic maceration, Beaujolais is excellent when served well chilled, perfectly suited to seafood and very easy to appreciate with ham. Beaujolais is about the unpretentious enjoyment of wine and indulgence of life.
Beaujolais-Villages is a sub-region amongst the hills to the north of Beaujolais, the same area as the ten great Crus of the appellation. Beaujolais-Villages is one of the oldest districts, covering 15,755 acres, the grapes are picked in thirty two villages, and selected from among thirty nine communes. Beaujolais-Villages have great individuality and drinkability, and are all different depending on the soil in which the vines grow. The French refer to them as the happy medium wines, they offer the unique Gamay fruit characters as well as the taste of fresh grapes. Vinified at 30C by the semi carbonic process, Georges Duboeuf is treated to an unwooded tank maturation for several months before bottling.
TASTING NOTES
Light candy purple colour, almost violet. Excitingly perfumed, fragrant with grape characters, fruit and musk, expressions of cherry and apple, florals and banana. According to Georges Duboeuf himself, this chillable red wine tastes of black currant and strawberry, richly textured and very pleasant to the palate. The fresh vibrant flavours of Beaujolais Villages are perfect for any season or cuisine, from Thai to hamburgers, peking duck to seafood.

More About Georges Duboeuf Winery
Georges Duboeuf is known as the Roi de Beaujolais, The King of Beaujolais
Vines have been growing in Beaujolais since the second or third century, as attested by various writings. What is certain is that Beaujolas owes its name to the Sires of Beaujeu, who reigned over a large and important territory from the 9th to 11th centuries. In 1400, Edouard de Beaujeu gave his lands to the Bourbon. Pierre de Bourbon married Anne de France, Louis XI's daughter, who became known as Anne de Beaujeu and was the Regent of France. She bestowed her patronage on the town of Villefranche, and in 1514 Villefranche was designated the new capital of the Beaujolais. Georges Duboeuf»
