Debra Meiburg MW Meets the Winemaker 129: Franck Duboeuf, Georges Duboeuf
Debra catches up with Franck Duboeuf of Georges Duboeuf “the Duboef dynasty” in Beaujolais, France. They discuss how the Deboeuf family represents the heart and soul of Beaujolais and what their role has been in growing fame and worldwide recognition of Beaujolais region’s wines. Debra also discovers what it is like for Franck to be the son of such a world-famous figure in the wine industry.
They discuss the best food pairings for Beaujolais wines and why Beaujolais enjoys such good recognition in Asia. Finally, Franck reveals his thoughts on the much-hyped annual November release of the new vintage of Beaujolais Nouveau, which is said to be delivered by plane, helicopter, elephants and more to the market, due to its extremely short shelf-life.
