About this WINE

Jules Desjourneys

Jules Desjourneys

Founded by Jules Desjourneys in 2007, the winery has gained a reputation for its single-vineyard expressions of Pouilly-Fuissé and its limited production of fine Beaujolais wines.

The estate focuses on small-scale production, advocating biodynamic farming practices and prioritising organic and sustainable methods in the vineyard. The vineyards are carefully managed, with low yields and a focus on expressing the unique terroir of each site.

Pouilly-Fuissé is one of the primary wines produced. The grapes are sourced from old-vine vineyards in the Macon region, specifically from top-quality sites within the Pouilly-Fuissé appellation. These vineyards are known for their limestone-rich soils and ideal sun exposure, resulting in wines with depth, complexity, and a distinct mineral character.

Jules Desjourneys also produces limited quantities of Beaujolais wines, focusing on the crus of Morgon and Moulin-à-Vent. These wines showcase the potential of Gamay, the primary grape variety of the Beaujolais region. With careful vineyard management and a minimalist winemaking approach, Jules Desjourneys aims to produce Beaujolais wines that exhibit depth, structure, and age-ability, highlighting each vineyard's unique qualities.

Chardonnay

Chardonnay

Chardonnay is often seen as the king of white wine grapes and one of the most widely planted in the world It is suited to a wide variety of soils, though it excels in soils with a high limestone content as found in Champagne, Chablis, and the Côte D`Or.

Burgundy is Chardonnay's spiritual home and the best White Burgundies are dry, rich, honeyed wines with marvellous poise, elegance and balance. They are unquestionably the finest dry white wines in the world. Chardonnay plays a crucial role in the Champagne blend, providing structure and finesse, and is the sole grape in Blanc de Blancs.

It is quantitatively important in California and Australia, is widely planted in Chile and South Africa, and is the second most widely planted grape in New Zealand. In warm climates Chardonnay has a tendency to develop very high sugar levels during the final stages of ripening and this can occur at the expense of acidity. Late picking is a common problem and can result in blowsy and flabby wines that lack structure and definition.

Recently in the New World, we have seen a move towards more elegant, better- balanced and less oak-driven Chardonnays, and this is to be welcomed.
