2017 Du Grappin Bourgogne Blanc

$32

Bourgogne Blanc Du Grappin is a “Tête de Cuvée”, five of our favourite barrels from our parcel of Chardonnay near the town of Péronne. These were large format barrels, three years-old on average, that had an extra layer of complexity that demanded bottling separately. Fermentation was done by native yeasts, as was malolactic conversion by naturally occurring lactic bacteria. We are lucky to have a great microbial ecosystem in our ancient winery in the walls of Beaune, continually used for winemaking for over 100 years!

This cuvée is richer than our Le Grappin wines, but also more joyous, with enough freshness to bring the rambunctious flavours to heel. For drinking now or over the next few years.

Our vision for Le Grappin is to seek out special sites in the over-looked, under-appreciated reaches of Burgundy. We seek out viticulteurs who tend their vines throughout the year with exceptional care and attention, to give the grapes the best opportunity to shine. Our job is to ensure the wine reaches it’s true potential; working by hand, with small lots, giving each wine as much care and attention as our viticulteurs have paid to the vines.

Our Du Grappin wines are a natural off-shoot from Le Grappin; vins de soif, made to be delicious, fun and refreshing. We source our grapes from the passionate and revolutionary growers in the under-rated Mâconnais, Beaujolais and Rhône regions. We make them by hand in our ancient cuverie in the walls of Beaune, with as much care and attention as with our Le Grappin wines. The results are wines with vivacity and personality; a joy to drink. – Andrew & Emma Nielsen, Le Grappin
