The Beaujolais is not necessarily the first place you’d look to find great Chardonnay, but who could resist the combination of old vines, limestone soil, and a beckoning price tag? Certainly not us. In the 510 years since founding their family domaine, the Dupeubles have selected the sites less favorable to Gamay, the region’s main cash crop, and planted Chardonnay for a Beaujolais blanc. Plump, juicy fruit dominates the nose, with an inviting abundance of citrus and peach, the whole upheld by a lively acidity. Like a delicious Burgundy but less fussy, Dupeuble’s white is just as reliable as their hedonistic rouge.
