WINEMAKER NOTES

Originally known as Domaine du Tracot, now-called Domaine Dubost has been owned by the Dubost family since 1902. Its origin was found in writings and traces on the main building. With his two sons, Corentin and Joffrey, winemaker Jean-Paul Dubost hopes that the 4th generation will continue the family tradition in providing wines that reflect their terroir, the culture of the vineyard and respecting the environment and soil.

TASTING NOTES

Soft tannins, round palate with aromas of red fruit (currant, raspberry, blackcurrant). Fresh, fruity and appealing simplicity – it likes to be enjoyed alone or as an accompaniment.

PAIRING SUGGESTIONS

Winemaker suggests to serve with terrines, stewed rabbit, Lyonnaise specialties, grilled meats or simply enjoy a drink with friends.
