Domaine des Terres Dorees Beaujolais Blanc 2015
Save $3.00 (18%)
Bottled without any oak, this is rich, and full with a terrific mineral finish. With a fresh and fruity bouquet when young, this wine becomes more honeyed as the wine matures, but is always lip-smacking and delicious. This wine exceeds its category. In the early 1990's, Jean-Paul Brun planted several hectares of Chardonnay on limestone soil. As demand increased, he expanded his holdings and began contracting for grapes with other local vignerons with limestone soils (which is is perfect for Chardonnay, especially in warmer climates.) The warm climate allows Jean-Paul to produce a rich wine with lots of character, while the soils preserve a fresh, mineral component. Fermented in stainless steel tanks that are laid on their side for more lees contact.
