"The prevalence of chalky soils in the south of Beaujolais is the principle reason why this area is classified merely as "Beaujolais" rather than "Beaujolais-Villages." But it is also a reason why Chardonnay can achieve outstanding results here, even if there are few examples (even fewer of which carry the "Beaujolais Blanc" rather than "Bourgogne" appellation). It is among the handful of consistently finest value Chardonnays on the planet.Displays a gorgeous aroma of diverse flowers, white peach, lime, grapefruit and ocean breeze. There is positively chewy substance on the palate, yet the wine remains refreshing and lilting in personality. The chalky, leesy sense of extract is palpable, yet floral nuances and delicate peach and lime fruit positively soar into the finish, along with savoury, saline, sweet scallop-like notes. This beauty is more reminiscent of a fine Chablis or even Riesling than of a Chardonnay from the Mâcon or Côte d`Or. A revelatory example of what is possible in this appellation and vintage. You can enjoy this over the next 2 - 3 years."Robert Parker

Winemaker

Jean-Paul Brun

"Jean-Paul practices organic winemaking and has no time for winemakers who jump on “cool” bandwagons without actually putting the work in on the vineyard. To him there are two types of wine; industrial and artisanal. Artisanal wines are those “where you can taste and feel the vigneron’s sensibilities.” He gets particularly annoyed by those who claim to be natural winemakers or sulphur free but that in reality end up using chemicals when they realise their wine is not good to begin with. He feels this discredits the natural winemaking movement. For him, natural winemaking is about being an honest winemaker. His reason for working like this? “I work this way because of a personal choice, out of respect to the planet and the people that drink our wines. The quality in my grapes was already there but now we work in a way that respects nature and we know it’s important for the future so it just feels like the right thing to do.”"
