Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais King


On Saturday, January 4, 2020, Beaujolais, France, and the wine industry lost one of their most passionate advocates with the passing of Georges Duboeuf the founder of Les Vins Georges Duboeuf, a family affair which started in September of 1964. Georges Duboeuf aka The Beaujolais King was 86 years old.

Georges Duboeuf’s love affair with Beaujolais is no secret. His legendary palate, his ability to spot great wine and his enthusiasm and passion will continue to make him an emblematic figure in the wine industry. His wines are renowned for their consistency, quality, and value. He was the first winemaker to bring Beaujolais Nouveau to the table.

Les Vins Georges Duboeuf is a family tradition and a beautiful legacy. Georges and his wife Rolande were joined by their son Franck who manages the Vins Georges Duboeuf business today, “it is up to the following generation to join the family adventure.”  

Les Vins DuBoeuf works closely with hundreds of small family winegrowers to procure the highest quality fruit throughout the region (over 400 in the Beaujolais region alone), as well as export many small Chateau and Estate-produced wines that would otherwise not be able to bring their wines to the US and sold in 120 countries throughout the world. Les Vins Georges Duboeuf is imported by Quintessential Wines, based in Napa, California.

In the US, the most popular Beaujolais Nouveau is Georges Duboeuf. Every year and year after year we anxiously awaited the unveiling of the Beaujolais Nouveau artistic label and the release of the Beaujolais Nouveau in the USA and we will continue to do so in remembrance of Georges Duboeuf.  “Le Beaujolais nouveau est arrivé!”

Beaujolais Nouveau is a fun unpretentious young wine bottled just 6-8 weeks after harvest to be enjoyed immediately and lightly chilled.  Made from the Gamay Noir à Jus Blanc grape known as Gamay from the Beaujolais AOC – Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée region, it is fresh, fruity and vibrant.  The tradition of Nouveau began when the winemakers and growers of the Beaujolais region celebrated the end of harvest with a young wine that was initially only produced for local consumption.

Les Vins Georges Duboeuf

Georges Duboeuf’s love affair with Beaujolais is no secret. His legendary palate, his ability to spot great wine and his enthusiasm continue to make him an emblematic figure in the wine industry. His wines are renowned for their consistency, quality, and value. Georges Duboeuf currently works closely with hundreds of winegrowers (over 400 in the Beaujolais region alone) to ensure the highest quality fruit from each region. They are sold in 120 countries throughout the world.

In the US, the most popular Beaujolais Nouveau is George Duboeuf! Georges Duboeuf and family is a premium producer of award-winning French wines from the Beaujolais and Mâconnais regions of Burgundy and the South of France.

Since this French wine first came to the U.S. in 1982, Beaujolais Nouveau Day has been an annual celebration to honor the end of harvest and offer the first taste of the new vintage.  Released at 12:01 a.m. on the third Thursday in November per French law, Beaujolais Nouveau is a bright, flavorful red wine made from the Gamay grape.

Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau complements an abundance of holiday dishes, from savory roasts to cranberry sauce. Serve this year’s Nouveau between 62°F – 66°F, which is just slightly cooler than room temperature, to enhance the aromas and fruit flavors.

[The spotlight is on the quality of the 2015 vintage:  Having tasted and analyzed thousands of samples, Georges Duboeuf and his winemaking team believes that 2015 Beaujolais Nouveau will be one of the best they’ve ever produced. “Thanks to an extremely early harvest and blazing sunshine throughout the summer, our grapes have obtained perfect maturity this year,” said winemaker Georges Duboeuf.  “This is why we believe that 2015 is such a special year and can compete with 1947, 1976, 2005 and 2009 – maybe even surpassing them.”

The 2015 vintage is predicted to be one of the all-time greats.  The color is a deep red with tones of purple and garnet, and the nose offers a magnificent array of black current, blackberry, and blueberry.  The wine is round, full-bodied with a long finish.]

Each year, Georges Duboeuf unveils a new wine label created by an artist. The 2015 label depicts the lush Beaujolais vineyards and bright, celebratory colors of the harvest.
