Jules Desjourneys Beaujolais Villages Blanc 2018Regular price £31.00
Domaine Jules Desjourneys – a.k.a owner/vigneron Fabien Duperray – has had a meteoric rise over the last few years. A Burgundian who started out as an agent for some of the region’s most famous names – Coche-Dury, Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Arnaud Ente – before moving operations to an old train station in La Chapelle-de-Guinchay, Fabien began life as a winemaker at the end of the 2000s, and is perfectly connected to develop his craft.
For Burg-lovers searching for superlative quality and affordability Desjourneys wines are hard to beat, although tiny production volumes make them increasingly scarce. Duperray farms biodynamically and ferments his whites in custom made glass globes, lending the wines a crystalline purity that balances the natural generosity of the Maconnais.
