Beaujolais Blanc Domaine des Terres Dorees 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The aim at Terres Dorees is to let the varied terroirs express themselves fully. In the early 1990s, Jean-Paul Brun planted 3 hectares of Chardonnay on limestone soil. He has since expanded the production of his well known and sought-after Beaujolais Blanc by contracting grapes from a small number of nearby vignerons.The clay-limestone soil that the Chardonnay grows on is perfect for the grape. The climate, which is a little warmer than the Cote d'Or enables Jean-Paul to produce a rich wine with lots of character. It is bottled completely unoaked. When young, the wine has a very fruity bouquet that becomes more honeyed as the wine matures.
