Brand new dream-team in one of our favourite French regions, Beaujolais, these school friends Sebastien Dupré and Guillaume Goujon grew up here and have had their domaine since 2015.
The talent is really showing in these wines which are incredible expressions of fruit purity, slick winemaking and extending ageing gives density and elegance. An agroforestry approach has earned their organic certification to include the 2021 vintage and they are undergoing biodynamic certification.
Viticulture and Vinification:
Gravity vatting, indigenous yeasts, SO2 free, semi-carbonic maceration in whole harvest 8 to 10 days. Unfiltered bottling with low quantity of sulfites.
La Démarrante wears a certain freshness and a very fine style, strewn with notes of cherry coulis and fresh peony which precede a mouth full and juicy at will. Refreshing, thirst-quenching, it is a Beaujolais delicacy. Ideal partner at the table! Can be enjoyed with a salad garnished with a soft-boiled egg and grilled bacon, a white pudding from Rethel and roasted pork loin, for example.
