Yohan Lardy Beaujolais-Village Blanc Les Bruyères 2019

Beaujolais Villages, Beaujolais, Burgundy, FranceYohan is the fifth generation in his family to grow wine in the Beaujolais, but 2012 was the first vintage under his own label, one focused on low-intervention wines of place. This organically farmed, young vine chardy comes off a small 1 acre vineyard in Les Bruyeres, near Fleurie, on silty clays. This was fermented and aged 6 months in stainless to preserve the bright fruit. Steely and sleek, with ripe pear, lightly waxen quince, lemon blossoms, bedded by lees, and finishing with a fine salinity. An easy, likeable chardy for enjoying now.Tasted: 22 October 2021Tasted by: Treve RingProducer: Yohan LardyGrape: Chardonnay
