Beaujolais Blanc AOP
Noël Bulliat and his son Loïc, who joined the Domaine in 2005, run this family estate that covers 27 ha in 8 different appellations in the heart of the Beaujolais region. It all started in 1978 when Noël bought 4 ha of Beaujolais Villages straight after having graduated from viticultural school. The estate started switching to organic practices in 2010 and was officially certified in 2013.
This is 100% Chardonnay, farmed organically and biodynamically, with a medium-bodied and mineral-driven outline. The fruit tends towards the citrus family, leaning somewhere between tart lemon zest and sweet lemon pulp with hints of pear and white nectarine too. There's loads of minerality on this, as most Beaujolais Blanc tend to give, with some strong white floral expressions leading through to a refreshing jolt of racy acidity. In a word: pretty.
Pair with seafood for a gorgeous weeknight combo or some sour cream and onion chips for a low-key weekend movie night.
