2017 Le Grappin Les Grèves Beaune 1er Cru Blanc

2017 Le Grappin Les Grèves Beaune 1er Cru Blanc

€81.95
From the only parcel of Chardonnay mid-slope in Beaune’s most famous climat, and adjacent to Bouchard Père et Fils’s monopole “Les Vignes d’Enfant Jesus”, these 50-year-old vines face south on a perfect incline for sunlight interception and drainage. Less than 1% of “Les Grèves” is planted to Chardonnay, and there are only five producers left who make a white “Les Grèves” Guava, pineapple, and other tropical fruits dominate the complex and powerful nose. Lush and creamy in the mouth it broadens and lengthens. Truly a singular terroir-driven wine – grand cru weight if not finesse. Muscular, broad, and long. Classic Beaune Grèves Blanc.
