Hautes Côtes de Nuits Blanc 2014, Domaine Guy and Yvan Dufouleur

Tasting Note

Cool fermented with limited oak to emphasise the clean, fresh mineral flavours. The wine has a rich nose packed with pure fruits flavours through to a clean finish.

Producer Note

The Dufouleur family have been merchants since 1596, but it was very recently that the new generation represented by Yvan & Yann decided to start distributing the family estate wines. Yann looks after the export markets; Yvan does the winemaking. The 33 hectares of vineyards extend from Fixin to Santenay and include exclusive ownership of Fixin's" Clos du Chapitre " Premier Cru.

Vineyard

Simple Guyot trained vines with average age of 30 years old. Vineyards farmed with sustainable farming methods (lutte raisonnée), with the use of natural organic products to protect the environment and preserve the characteristic of the soil and subsoil. Two annual tillings and green harvest to limit yields.

Winemaking

Total de-stemming followed by cold fermentation for 2 weeks. After pressing only 20% of the wine is aged in oak barrels for malolactic fermentation. The rest is aged in stainless steel vats.

Serving Suggestion

Enjoy with fish and white meats.
