Domaine des Nugues Beaujolais-Villages Blanc 2017

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine from the website www.vinatis.co.uk for £11.Beaujolais is an appellation created in 1936 for red and white wines from 96 communes between Macon and Lyon and 36 of these communes mainly in the north are allowed to use the more prestigious Beaujolais Villages appellation.Beaujolais Blanc is made of the chardonnay grape but is not common partly because some communes in Beaujolais have regulations restricting the proportion of white grapes allowed and partly because the Maconnais appellations overlap northern Beaujolais and many producers regard them as more marketable.Domaine des Nugues is a family concern in norther Beaujolais. I started my bottle last night with my supper of fish cakes. It is a dry wine with some melon and peach style fruit but no suggestions of butter or vanilla making me think this is unoaked. This I would describe as a fairly mineral white wine but it was a good match for the fishcakes
