Domaine Julien Gros Savigny-Les-Beaune Blanc 2018
WineSpark Price €29.63
My nose led me to the area of the Groupe des Jeunes Professionnels de la Vigne, or the young winemakers of Burgundy. Current WineSpark winemakers Mylene & Benoit Nicolas and Guillaume Michaut are members, so I thought there’d be further talent to discover here.
One sniff of this wine and I knew I’d found The One. A flinty, nutty, citrusy nose, followed by a broad, textured and complex palate - fine wine heaven.
Julien Gros is a bit of an outlier in Savigny-Les-Beaune, a region much better known for its reds. 80% of Julien’s production is white wine, and being the 10th generation in his family to make wine, it’s fair to say he knows what he’s doing.
It’s from a small, south-facing vineyard on clay-limestone soil called Clos du Village. The wine is aged for 14 months in 50% new oak barrels, and this combination of ripeness, minerality from the soil, and influence from the oak, make it a full-flavoured Chardonnay full of elegance and complexity.
I can’t wait to hear what you think of this discovery!
