About Domaine Dubost
A traditional winery producing full flavoured powerful wines
Located in Lantignié in Beaujolais in Eastern France, Domaine Dubost is a family-owned estate managed by the vigneron. Jean-Paul is the third generation in his family to farm these lands and he is determined to remain faithful to his terroir and the traditional style of the Beaujolais Crus.
Domaine Dubost exports half their production and strives to produce wines that consistently reflect the terroir of Beaujolais and are typical of the region. His wines are designed to accompany food and are served in many top restaurants in Paris (he drives up to Paris in a large truck every other week to deliver stock to his customers personally).
VinAccessGlobal and Domaine Dubost have been working together since 2020. Domaine Dubost’s exquisite wines are now available in Australia and Thailand, and we are in discussion with partners in Cambodia, Vietnam, Singapore and New Zealand.
Because Beaujolais is so underrated this has been a long term project and we have been working with Domaine Dubost for almost three years!

Domaine Dubost Wines
Domaine Dubost’s core range comprises of the following outstanding appellations
Fleurie Le Vivier
Nose hints of boiled sweets and on the palate the fruit is supported by firm acidity which makes it a fabulous accompaniment to a hearty meal.
Moulin a Vent en Brenay
Intense savoury medicinal nose suggesting a wine that has a long way to go to develop fully. On the palate the flavours are dense and the fruit is masked somewhat by tannin. Over lunch the flavours began to emerge as the bottle had time to breather. JP comments that this wine can age for more than 10 years.
Morgan La Ballofiere
Very different style with a nose redolent of savoury flavours with medicinal hints. On the palate the tannins are more evident than in the other Crus and the flavours are more complex and persistent. Very much a serious food wine.
Fragrant floral fruity nose this unoaked wine has firm structure in the mouth with some acidity and bags of sour cherry fruit. The texture in the mouth is silky with subtle tannins and an elegant long finish in which the fruit flavours linger.
Régnié has higher acidity than Brouilly and even more cooked red fruits and hints of boiled sweets on the palate. Very appealing mouth filling flavour and long finish.
Beaujolais Villages Lantignie
Made from mostly old bush vines the Beaujolais Villages has a delightful typical strawberry fresh nose; on the palate it is fresh, soft, lively, and fruity with soft tannins adding a little structure.

A few words from Alison, VinAccessGlobal Founder
“I visited Jean-Paul Dubost in Lantignié in February 2020, just before the world was shut down by the pandemic. The estate was established in 1902 and Jean-Paul is the third generation to manage, almost single handed, the Dubost family’s 35 hectares, of which 22 are in different Crus scattered across several Beaujolais Crus villages. He drove me around the main Crus and showed me the results of the recent pruning work in the vineyards. Returning to the cellar, an empty barrel was set with bottles from every Cru he makes, and we tasted through the whole range. Domaine Dubost wines are consistently excellent and offer some of the best value in Beaujolais, arguably France’s most underrated red wine region.”
A few words from Jean-Paul, Owner of Domaine Dubost
“J’adore travailler avec toi – tu es le raffinement anglais dans le contexte asiatique. Tu es venue toi-même mettre les pieds dans la terre des vignes du Beaujolais et je suis très attache à toi en Ambassadrice de nos vins. Les Crus de Beaujolais sont l’alcôve de la Bourgogne et les acheteurs ont l’œil sur nos vins de plus en plus.”

“I love working with you – you are English refinement in an Asian context. You have come to set foot in the Beaujolais vineyards yourself and I am very attached to you as an ambassador for our wines. The Crus de Beaujolais are the alcove of Burgundy and buyers are keeping an eye on our wines more and more.”
