Domaine Dupeuble is located In the hamlet of Le Breuil, deep in the southern Beaujolais and perched above a narrow creek, the Domaine Dupeuble winery has been running almost continuously since 1512. The name of the domaine has changed just three times in its history, most recently when the last heir, Anna Asmaquer, married Jules Dupeuble in 1919. Anna’s son Paul, and her grand children Ghislaine and Stéphane Dupeuble, manage the domaine. Kermit first met Ghislaine and Stéphane’s father, Damien, for lunch in Paris in the late 1980s, and thus began the annual tradition of blending the KLWM Beaujolais Nouveau.
The wines are harvested from the south-facing 50-100-year-old vines which are Organic. Every grape is manually harvested, with only wild yeasts used and no chaptalisation or filtration. The result is wines of succulent, vibrant red fruit with wonderful clarity and purity.
This AOC Beaujolais is full of morello cherry, blackcurrants and raspberry fruit on the palate. It’s medium-bodied and smooth, with a slightly rustic finish.
