Louis Jadot, Beaune 1er Cru Les Grèves Le Clos Blanc, 2012
Region: Côte de Beaune, Burgundy, France
Bottle size: 75cl
This unusual rare and rather exotic white wine is full, rich and spicy, with broad fruit flavours and exceptional depth offset by notes of almonds, earth and gently toasted oak. It has the great potential to age as we find with this example
In French, 'Grèves' means sandy, small stones, which describes the soil of these vineyards. Grèves is one of the few vineyards to yield a white equal in stature to its red.
Perfect with grilled white meats or creamy cheeses
