Beaune Blanc 2017
A good counterpart to our Beaune Rouge wines, it is full bodied and will age well.
Beaune vineyards are the most extensive of the Côte de Beaune, between Savigny to the North, and Pommard to the South. There are no Grand Cru vineyards in this commune, but 36 Premiers Crus. There is little white wine in Beaune. Louis Jadot Beaune white is a blend of two vineyards: one located underneath the Premier Cru Bressandes on top of the Beaune hill, the other one at the foot of the hill close to a water source.
The 2017 vintage was very dry, but was relatively cool. Luckily, the frost damage was minimal and a combination of moderate day temperatures and cool evenings resulted in relatively good yield and wonderful flavour concentration.
Grapes are harvested by hand and put in small cases in order not to damage the fruits. Grapes are pressed softly, and fermented in oak barrels - of which 1/3 are new barrels. Ageing usually lasts 15 months on fine lees before bottling.
