Beaujolais Nouveau Duboeuf 2019
There’s a certain sense of relief when the grape harvest starts to wind down and comes to a close. And this vintage has certainly not been an easy one.
It stayed cold throughout April and May, slowing vine growth ahead of a wet and blustery first half of June.
The gusts blowing up from the south played havoc with the vines as the blossoms began to fade. Summer finally appeared on June 22nd, and the gentle warmth soon turned into a heatwave. The storm on July 1st brought cooler temperatures, but also a touch of hail in the upper reaches of Beaujolais. There is good reason to be optimistic. The season may have started on the wrong foot, but we’re now looking at some excellent and smaller harvests – thanks mostly to the unpredictable weather.
