About The Wine
The Georges Descombes Beaujolais Blanc is one of the best examples of Chardonnay in the region.
The fruit hails from the north of the region, not far from Maconnais. Descombes makes this with very little intervention allowing the natural energy and drive of the fruit to shine.
There is very little Beaujolais Blanc that makes it to Australia. This is one of the top examples that we do occasionally get access to. It has rich flavour but freshness in spades.
This is a gorgeous Chardonnay from an unsung pocket of Burgundy.
About Georges Descombes
Georges Descombes is the son of a Beaujolais vigneron who found his inspiration for his own label in the legendary wines of local legend, Marcel Lapierre.
Whilst working on the bottling line for many of the local producers, Georges was taken with the purity and finesse of the wines of Lapierre who's natural approach has carved a path for so many in the region. Georges has taken his father's traditional farming practices to another level, now having both his inherited and acquired vineyards certified organic and choosing a hands-off approach in the cellar.
Considered the unofficial fifth member of the legendary "Gang of Four" of top-flight Beaujolais revolutionaries, his wines are of the highest repute.
