Description

DOMAINE BULLIAT, CUVEE CARACTÈRE – Beaujolais 

Grape variety: Chardonnay 100% 

The wine story
This 75 acre domain was created 40 years ago by Daniel and Mylene Bulliat. It is situated near the small town of Beaujeu which is the historic capital of Beaujolais. Fifteen different wines are produced here in several appellations and include red, white, and sparkling wines. All the wines are certified “Terra vitis”, which means sustainable cultivation and vinification methods are used. 

Vineyards are on steep slopes and south oriented. The soil is loamy clay on granite subsoil. The harvest is handpicked and pressed quickly. Vinification lasts about 20 to 30 days in temperature-controlled vats. 30% of this cuvée was aged in oak barrels. The wine maker is using the same Chardonnay variety as in Burgundy, a sign that the vignerons in this region are seeking to improve their quality and challenge their richer neighbors. Bulliat is president of an association of Beaujolais producers who share the same ambition.  

Favorite Pairing
This wine is refreshing and will pair well with fish and seafood, poultry, veal, Japanese food, and fresh or semi dry goat cheese.  

The Region
The Beaujolais region is situated north of the city of Lyon and south of the Burgundy region, on the right bank of the Rhone River. It produces mostly red wine from the Gamay variety. Gamay is pleasant and easy to drink but is less prestigious and less expensive than its Burgundy neighbor made from Pinot Noir. 

Aroma
Fresh aroma of honeysuckle and apricot 

Flavor
Complex and balanced between sweet fruitiness and citrus acidity. Finishes with hints of mint.
