Domaine du Tracot in Lantignié in the Beaujolais was created in 1902. The Dubost family became owners in 1960, when Henri Dubost took over the management of the domain, replanting the vineyard. His son, Jean-Paul, now helps his own children in continuing to develop the domain, following organic principles in the vineyard. The domain now spans 21 hectares on the terroirs of Moulin-à-Vent, Fleurie, Brouilly, Morgon and Régnié. However, Jean-Paul hasn’t neglected the Beaujolais-Nouveau appellation, which he produces exactly like his other cuvées.
About the cuvée
This cru from Jean-Paul Dubost comes from old vines in the eponymous lieu-dit. Aged, eighty years, the vines grow on clay, limestone and blue schist soils and are managed in line with organic methods. Vinifications are a natural affair and the resulting wine is characterised by its power, softened by delicate aromas. Drink this wine in its youth, ever so slightly chilled.
