The Chateau des Bachelards is a well known property in the village of Fleurie having produced some of the best wine in the region for generations.
The story begins over four centuries ago, when the Duboeuf family was producing wine in the Maconnais region. Georges was very young when his uncle and brother passed down both their passion for wine and their secrets of production. At just 18 years old, he preferred to take care of the family business with his brother rather than pursuing his studies. Georges Duboeuf is a premium producer of award-winning French wines from the Beaujolais and Maconnais regions of Burgundy and the South of France—the #1 selling brand of Beaujolais in the world. Georges Duboeuf's love affair with Beaujolais is no secret. His legendary palate, his ability to spot a good wine, and his continuing enthusiasm made him an emblematic figure in the wine industry. His wines are renowned for their consistency, quality, and value. Georges Duboeuf currently works closely with hundreds of growers (over 400 winegrowers in the Beaujolais region alone) in order to be sure that the highest quality of fruit from each region is being sourced. Georges Duboeuf offers this Fleurie as a single estate bottling which is very unique in this region where most wines are sold as negociant blends. Fleurie of course is one of Beaujolais' most popular and highly regarded single Crus.
