Dupeuble Beaujolais Blanc 2018
Grandson Damien manages the Dupeuble domaine along with his wife, brothers, sons, and daughter. Kermit first met Damien for lunch in Paris in the late 1980s, and thus began the annual tradition of blending the KLWM Beaujolais Nouveau. Tradition runs deep in the family, but each generation has also managed to add something new, including increasing the property. Strong advocates of the lutte raisonnée approach to vineyard work, they tend their vines without the use of any chemicals or synthetic fertilizers. The wines are not chaptalized, filtered, or degassed and only natural yeasts are used for the fermentation. The wines of Dupeuble represent some of the best values in the Beaujolais today and are widely regarded for their very high quality and eminently reasonable price.
