Taste great Beaujolais with Domaine Dubost
6-8 $12 no reservations

Please join us tonight to taste with Clementine Baste from Beaujolais grower Domaine Dubost. The Dubosts are long-established farmers in the Beaujolais region, where they have worked for almost 100 years. About half of their production is Beaujolais Village from vineyards located in the southern part of the appellation and planted on sandy-clay soils. These fresh, well-crafted wines exemplify what to expect from the foursquare, non-industrial wines of the region—even the basic wine is from organically farmed grapes, and ferments with wild yeasts. (Please note that nearly all Beaujolais Village wines ferment with selected yeast because it is an industrial expedient. This makes for predictable, uniform-tasting, and boring wine, and why drink snore wines when there’s good stuff to be had? Stay woke!). The entry level wines see zero oak and ferment in neutral concrete tank, while the cru designated wines see older large barrel, made entirely without sulfites. We’re tasting one cru Beaujolais from 2014, and three from the warmer 2015 vintage.
