The wine is stunning, offering up a classy bouquet of crisp green apple, Anjou pear and fragrant citrus fruits, with touches of nutmeg and beeswax on the upper register. Ample, glossy and full-bodied, it's wonderfully pure and intense, with striking mid-palate depth and dimension and, above all, an almost electric sense of energy that marries beautifully with its more dramatic, textural elements.
"It is a remarkable wine that would embarrass many grands crus from Puligny-Montrachet in a blind tasting." - William Kelley, Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The hand behind Domaine Jules Desjourneys is Fabien Duperray, fine connoisseur of Burgundy and Beaujolais terroirs who turned his hand to winemaking in 2007 with the ambition of making the greatest wine possible.
