2018 Beaujolais Blanc, Domaine Descombes, Beaujolais, France, Beaujolais AOC
Georges Descombes comes from a family of winegrowers over several generations. He took over the family estate in 1988. This adept of organic farming vinifies without artifice and has become one of the masters of the so-called natural Beaujolais.
Here is what the Revue du Vin de France has to say about him:
The winegrower has made the wines evolve towards greater purity and franchise, each one expressing the dimension of the crus and terroirs: a real lesson.
The white seduces with its luminous and pure approach. The judicious maturing process, between 400-litre barrels and vats, underlines the elegant substance (apple and fresh almonds, nougat).
