It’s Fall and time to think about heartier wines such as this Cabernet Sauvignon from Georges Duboeuf, a favorite French winemaker whose red table wines, among others, make Fall wine-sipping a treat. This wine’s deep red color and nose of aromatic red berries reflect its dark berries, Morello cherries, and ‘liquorice’.
The family began producing wines in the Maconnais region more than 400 years and in 1964, created a wine merchant business celebrating its wines. Today, the winery works closely with 300 winemakers and have, since the ’80s, gained recognition in North America, Australia, and Japan as well as in Europe. Georges and his wife Rolande, and their son, Franck and his wife, Anne, today maintain a unique theme park for wine and viticulture. Their passion, they say, is “a family endeavor.”
It was a Beaujolais from Georges DuBoeuf in the 1980’s that introduced this writer to the glories of French wines and we remain grateful to this day!
