Du Grappin, Macon-Villages 2018
From 25 year-old vines on the outskirts of Peronne, considered by many to be the best terroir in the appellation. Pressed without SO2, then racked to old, large format barrels for a native fermentation. Aged undisturbed en lies for 7 months with a light filtration before bottling for focus and freshness.
Le Grappin began in 2011 following Andrew Nielsen's five-year journey working for some of the world's great Pinot Noir and Chardonnay artisans in California, Central Otago, Burgundy and the Yarra Valley. Our vision for Le Grappin is to seek out special sites in the over-looked, under-appreciated reaches of Burgundy. We seek out viticulteurs who tend their vines throughout the year with exceptional care and attention, to give the grapes the best opportunity to shine. Our job is to ensure the wine reaches it's true potential; working by hand, with small lots, giving each wine as much care and attention as our viticulteurs have paid to the vines. Our Du Grappin wines are a natural off-shoot from Le Grappin...vins de soif, made to be delicious, fun and refreshing. We source our grapes from the passionate and revolutionary growers in the under-rated Maconnais, Beaujolais and Rhone regions. We make them by hand in our ancient cuverie in the walls of Beaune, with as much care and attention as with our Le Grappin wines. The results are wines with vivacity and personality; a joy to drink.
