"There is nothing quite as good as drinking an ‘artisan’ `Beaujolais’ slightly chilled in the warm Summer months. Produced from pinot’s cousin, Gamay, like many pinots, they are (generally) light to medium bodied, energetic, and making a serious comeback, no doubt due to a massive increase in quality in the region, and a focus from importers and wine lovers alike on smaller boutique producers.
The producer Jean Paul Dubost is a leader in the region and practices biodynamic viticulture as well as minimal intervention winemaking with only a little sulphur added at bottling for stability. This is ‘authentic’ Beaujolais, not 'lolly water’, as often seen in more mass produced ‘supermarket' examples of the style. You can taste the quality of the mid weight dark cherry/raspberry fruit, infused with a pleasing savouriness that gives it a real sense of seriousness.
