Domaine Jules Desjourneys Pouilly-Vinzelles ‘Les Longeays’ 2016 Magnum

Singular Chardonnay from Southern Burgundy: no oak, fiercely mineral, all class.

Jamie Goode (Wineanorak): “This is minerally and spicy with real intensity. There’s a hint of matchstick reduction with real intensity to the citrus and pear fruit. Very mineral and expressive with purity and focus. Such an expressive, pure, detailed, complex wine. 95/100”

Vinification

Highly original white Burgundy vinified by Fabien Duperray using organically farmed grapes from Domaine Thibert. The Pouilly-Vinzelles comes from 30-year-old vines on clay-limestone soils, east-facing at about 300 meters altitude. The grapes are hand-harvested, whole-bunch pressed and fermented, and aged in steel tanks. Sulfur is used minimally and the wine is only delicately filtered before bottling.
