Domaine Jean-Michel Dupré Vignes de 1940 Beaujolais-Villages 2011
This dynamic winegrower works hard but with good results on an estate of very old vines.
Tasting Notes: The nose is initially discreet then discloses some notes of blackberry and liquorice. Gradually, the range of aromas moves towards fiery and roasted notes. The mouth is full, recalling the same flavors. A long finish concludes the tasting with a sensation of intense wine contents, symptomatic of a great terroir, surprising by its complexity. Pairing: Traditionally with suckling pick. Try with hare paté, grilled steak and game. Good with blue cheese and goat’s cheese. Serve at 15°C. Color: red Varietal: Gamay Bottle Volume (ml): 750 Appellation: Beaujolais-Villages Producer Website:http://www.terroirs-originels.com/
Domaine Jean-Michel Dupré Vignes de 1935 Morgon 2010
Forget the widespread image of easy wines and don’t be surprised by these terroir wines which require a year before delivering their full flavor. From 75+ year old vines on average.
Tasting Notes: Beautiful cherry robe with purplish tints. The nose is marked by the specificities of the terroir and minerality, and then some small black fruits, blackberries and kirsch notes. The attack is powerful and the mouth is well balanced and very round. The finish expresses some very tasty Kirsch, ripe fruits and Garrigue notes as for the wine made in Provence. What length! Pairing: Roast pork, white meat and poultry. Veal “cordon bleu” and blue cheese. Serve at 15°C. Color: red Varietal: Gamay Bottle Volume (ml): 750 Appellation: Morgon Producer Website:http://www.terroirs-originels.com/
