Dominique Morel, Beaujolais Blanc

£24.00

WINEMAKER Dominique Morel

REGION : Beaujolais, France

GRAPE : Chardonnay 100%

VINTAGE : 2021

ABV : 12.5%

NOTES : Vegan

 

In the great price hike of Burgundy, white beaujolais can a refreshingly great value for money escape. This one from Dominique Morel is a great example from the family-run winery north of Fleurie. They say that Dominique his ethos is to “make wine he likes to drink”… which I would hope most winemakers would standby but we understand what they mean. Theres lots of concentrated fruit, soft and round mouthfeel and wonderful citrus and white stone fruit aromas with just the nicest touch of flowers. Crisp and lingering, it’s great for bringing the best out of vegetable dishes like our Kashiphal or something creamy with some starch like our Bhuna Aloo. It drinks well and we like to drink it too!

WINERY & PRODUCTION

Dominique Morel has been running the winery since 1967 but it’s been functioning since the early 1900s. It’s comprised of 18 hectares in Beaujolais with vines aged up to 70 years, but an average of 15 years, on difficult granite that make the vines work to provide great concentration. They are planted at a high density with harvests early in the morning to preserve the freshness before gentle pressing and stainless steel tank fermentation with a bit of malolactic fermentation before 5 months of the lees. Confident, elegant and experience production!
