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 yeast and SO2 free fermentation takes place 2-thirds in barrel and 1-third stainless steel, followed by 12 months on fine lies in tank. Unfined and unfiltered bottling with low quantity of sulfites.
Tasting: Very fresh wine with notes of white peach, nectarine, honeydew melon and bartlett pear. On the palate, the Clos des Mûriers has a very fresh and fleshy and fatty juice, with an elegance close. It will be perfect with freshwater fish dishes or a cathedral city and smoked ham toastie on white bread with crusts cut off.
